Breaking the Invincibility Code: How the Below 100 Initiative Is Improving the Law Enforcement Safety Culture


The California Highway Patrol (CHP) lays claim to a sobering truth: the agency has suffered 225 line-of-duty deaths since being founded in 1929. Over that same period of time, nearly 15,000 names from law enforcement organizations across the United States have been added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Law enforcement officers and leaders share a common ideology, the belief that there is no higher calling than that of those who put themselves in harm’s way every day to protect others—the calling of a peace officer. All officers also understand and appreciate the dangers inherent to this noble profession.
