Officer Down Memorial Page: End of Watch Report June 2016

The month of June 2016 saw eleven line of duty deaths across the country.  Two of those were due to gunfire, two to a heart attack, and seven were auto-related: 1 motorcycle accident, two car accidents, one vehicle pursuit, and three vehicular assaults. Of the eleven fallen officers who gave their lives in the line of duty in June 2016, ten were men and one was a woman.  Eleven agencies lost officers across five different states.

At the halfway point in the year, line of duty deaths stand at 51 and are, gratefully, down 21% as compared to 2015.

The Officer Down Memorial Page extends our deepest condolences to the families, friends, and agencies who lost a loved one in June 2016.  Read their memorials and Remember the Fallen:
