 2020 Officer Fatalities Report and Special Programming

Watch Important Program Broadcasts Following the Release of the 2020 Law Enforcement Officers Fatalities Report

On Monday, January 11, 2021, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum will release its proprietary detailed report on all line-of-duty deaths in 2020. Following the release of the report, as part of the Destination Zero initiative, a series of critical programs will be held to provide lifesaving information of the highest relevance to our law enforcement officers, based on trends found in the leading line-of-duty death categories of firearms, traffic, and health-related circumstances.

Across the three days following the release of the report, on January 12, 13, and 14, in-depth one-on-one interviews will be held between leaders in law enforcement and the medical field from federal agencies, major cities, and counties to address the growing threats against officers based on our annual report data. These highly focused conversations will include resources and strategies for officers before, during, and after events, such as resilience and preparation, training and response, and support when recovering from traumatic and tragic events.

Each program will be streamed across multiple web and social media platforms and available thereafter to reach the greatest numbers of officers and their families to ensure that we reach zero annual fatalities as soon as possible.
