The Officer Down Memorial Page: End of Watch Report October 2016

In the month of October 2016, seventeen law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in the United States.  Of those officers, eight died as the result of felonious gunfire, one died as the result of accidental gunfire, one died from a 9/11-related illness, and the remaining seven officers died in vehicle-related incidents (three auto accidents, one motorcycle accident, one struck by vehicle, one vehicular assault, and one vehicle pursuit).  Also worth noting is that four agencies lost multiple officers in October 2016.

Of the officers who died in October 2016, sixteen were male and one was female.  Two of the officers killed last month had served one year or less in law enforcement.

The total number of line of duty deaths in 2016 stands at 111 at the end of October, up 4% from this time last year.

The Officer Down Memorial Page offers our sincere condolences to the families, friends, and agencies who lost a loved one in October 2016.
