Officer Down Memorial Page: End of Watch Report September 2015

September 2015 saw the end of watch for fourteen law enforcement officers.  
Five of those deaths were the result of felonious gunfire, four were the result of automobile accidents, two were the result of heart attack, two were due to 9/11-related illness, and one was the result of a medical emergency during a training exercise.
Each of these fallen heroes deserves our thanks and gratitude and will be remembered and honored for having given their lives in service.
The Officer Down Memorial Page sends our deepest condolences to the family, friends, and agencies who lost a loved one in September 2015.
