Two Agents Who Died in a Training Accident on May 17, 2013 Saluted by the FBI

FBI Agents Killed as the Direct Result of an Adversarial Action

The FBI honors its special agents killed in the line of duty as the result of a direct adversarial force or at or by the hand of an adversary. These agents are memorialized at FBI Headquarters and field offices so that their ultimate sacrifice will always be remembered. A total of 36 agents have been designated as Service Martyrs.

FBI Agents and Professional Staff Who Gave Their Lives in the Performance of a Law Enforcement Duty

The FBI also honors those agents and professional staff employees who lose their lives in the performance of their duty, but not necessarily during an adversarial confrontation. This would include situations involving “hot pursuit” of criminals and when death results from the agent taking immediate action to save one or more lives. In remembrance of their sacrifice, these agents and professional staff employees are memorialized at FBI Headquarters and field offices. A total of 21 agents and one professional staff employee have been so honored.
