Officer Down Memorial Page: End of Watch Report February 2016

In February 2016, ten officers died in the line of duty in the United States.

One of those officers lost his life in an aircraft accident. The remaining nine were victims of felonious gunfire -- including one officer who was serving her very first day on the job.

That figure -- nine gunfire deaths in a single month -- is the highest such total in over three years; the last month with nine or more gunfire line of duty deaths was August 2012. 

The Officer Down Memorial Page extends it's deepest sympathies and condolences to the families, friends, and agencies who lost a loved one in February 2016.
