End of Watch Report July 2018

In July 2018, fourteen law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in the U.S. bringing the year-to-date total to 91.  This represents a 12% increase over the same time in 2017.

Of the fourteen line of duty deaths in July, six were the result of felonious gunfire.  Three were the result of a heart attack and two deaths resulted from duty-related illness.  Two were auto-related (one vehicle pursuit and one vehicular assault). One was the result of an assault.
