Christmas Eve is the deadliest day in law enforcement and excluding September 11th, we are quickly coming up on the second and third deadliest days. The next week will likely see dangerous incidents for law enforcement across the country.
Gunfire deaths are especially high during these days with approximately two-thirds of line of duty deaths coming from felonious assaults.
I don’t bring this up to scare you but I bring it up to make you aware. Awareness can equal vigilance and vigilance typically means a safer environment for our police officers.
For those of you working during these historically dangerous days, please know that we are with you. Our mission is to do whatever we can to provide you the resources to be as safe as possible.
Thank you for what you do.
