THE NAMES LISTED HERE DO NOT REFLECT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF OFFICERS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY. THIS IS A PARTIAL LIST.

Although we have a full time news and research department that tracks security and 
private police officer injuries and deaths, the total number of deaths is unknown due to a lack 
of accurate agency reporting, media omitting names, and misclassification of job titles.
