That protection comes at a price, however. Each year, there are approximately 60,000 assaults on law enforcement officers, resulting in nearly 16,000 injuries. Sadly, over the last decade, an average of 150 officers a year have been killed in the line of duty. And throughout U.S. history, more than 20,000 law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice.
As of 1/16/2015 "121" Officers have been killed in the line of duty in 2014. To start 2015 off right, I've decided for the whole month of January to dedicate each day to a specific state and run or ruck the mileage that would represent the total numbers of Officers killed in the line of duty.
