100

This year the United States has again had over 100 police officers killed in the line of duty.  Some have been killed in just this last week of the year.  As always, many of them were officers killed in a one vehicle traffic collision. 

A young male officer in a police car, responding to a "hot" call runs off the road and crashes the patrol car; getting himself killed.  This exact scenario happens more than once, every year.  We do a poor job of instructing our young officers to drive safely, especially en-route to an urgent call for service.

Every year since 1943 at least 100 officers have been killed every year.  Many of those deaths could be prevented if we followed a few simple procedures. Wear your seatbelt, don't drive too fast, wear your body armor; that's what the SGT Says.
