End of Watch Report June 2020

In June 2020, fifteen officers died in the line of duty in the United States. This brings the year-to-date total to 114 officers, a 44% increase over this time last year.  This increase is largely due to the 51 officers who have died as a result of COVID-19 in the past few months.

In June, five officers died as a result of gunfire, five died as a result of COVID-19, four died in auto-related incidents (two automobile crashes, one motorcycle crash, one vehicular assault), and one officer died as a result of a different duty-related illness.

The Office Down Memorial Page extends our deepest condolences to the families, friends, and agencies who lost a loved one to a line of duty death in June 2020.  Please take a moment to read the memorial and remember those fallen officers.
