Line of Duty Death report for January 2020 showing 12 line of duty deaths nationally, an 8% decrease from last January.

January 2020 started the year with a total of twelve line of duty deaths across the country.  Of those twelve deaths, three were the result of gunfire, seven were auto-related (two vehicular assault, two struck by vehicle, one vehicle pursuit, one auto crash, and one motorcycle crash), one was the result of a heart attack, and one was due to a 9/11-related illness.  Of the twelve officers who died in January 2020, four were women.

The Officer Down Memorial Page extends our deepest condolences to the families, friends, and agencies who lost a loved on to a line of duty death last month and asks that you take the time to read their memorials and remember the fallen.
