2009 LODD 6-Month Summary

The following is a brief look at the line of duty death numbers for the first half of the year. Future posts will take a narrow look at these fatalities, the difference between “on duty” and “line of duty”, and without the inclusion of the December 2003 Hometown Heroes Survivors Benefits Act. This is to be a cultural and numerical evaluation and is purposefully not being done to minimize the sacrifice of the the fallen and their families.
