November 2020 End of Watch Report

In November 2020, eighteen law enforcement officers died in the line of duty nationally.  Of those eighteen, fourteen died as a result of COVID-19. Three died from gunfire, and one died due to drowning.  The year-to-date total for line of duty deaths stands at 271 at the end of November, an 83% increase from the same time last year.

The Officer 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 November 2020.
