Police more likely to be killed in ambushes than radio runs, according to jarring new report from Justice Department
Cops are more likely to be killed in ambushes and unprovoked attacks than on radio runs, according to a startling new report released Friday.
A five-year survey of police line-of-duty deaths across the country conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice and the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund determined that 134 of the 684 police fatalities reviewed took place when cops were not responding to a 911 call.
The cops were killed during “instances where officers were ambushed in unprovoked attacks, performing tactical operations, serving warrants and conducting follow-up investigative work,” according to the report, titled “Deadly Calls and Fatal Encounters.”
