  • America sets new record in 2021!

    In 2021, 458 law enforcement officers died "in the line of duty".
    Not since the 1930's (360 officers) have so many LEO's died on the job.

    Hey Bubba-
    Give us a break.
    Covid-19 was the leading cause of law enforcement line-of-duty deaths in 2021.

      I think they consider covid deaths, on the job. I agree, the police are often working very close to infected people who are breathing hard. I'd say police are very exposed to covid. The recent ruling by SCOTUS that covid doesn't constitute a job related hazard was very wrong in my opinion. While covid sickness, long term incapacity, and even death might seem less heroic than getting shot, it's still a big risk that people take. Many other workers too. Workers, be they cops, nurses, grocery store clerks, whoever, deserve a work environment as safe as possible.

          But we are comparing apples to oranges.
          Covid-19-related deaths accounted for 301, or 66%, of the 458 fatalities reported last year.
