Changing the Culture of Officer Safety and Wellness

In 2013, line-of-duty deaths among law enforcement officers in the United States dropped to the lowest recorded number in over 50 years. Still, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, there were 105 men and women from state, local, tribal, or federal law enforcement agencies who tragically lost their lives.1 It is the IACP’s position that no injury or death of a law enforcement professional is acceptable. As an organization that serves as the professional voice of law enforcement, the IACP is committed to providing leadership, advocacy, and training and educational resources to better inform and equip all law enforcement professionals, from patrol officers to executives.
