LEOKA Preliminary Statistics Released

05/17/2013
 

Mollie Halpern: An FBI preliminary report shows more than 90 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty in 2012; 47 of those officers were killed feloniously.

Jeremy Wiltz: Feloniously killed refers to being killed in the line of duty by someone with criminal intent, as opposed to being accidentally killed.

Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern, and this is FBI, This Week. The Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted, or LEOKA, report shows the highest numbers of officers feloniously killed were investigating suspicious persons or circumstances at the time. Deputy Assistant Director of the Criminal Justice Information Services Division Jeremy Wiltz says the report is used to shape the Bureau’s officer safety awareness training courses.

Wiltz: Through the understanding of some of the studies we do and the statistics that we gather, it allows us to help our law enforcement partners and our agents to be better prepared for the things they’re going to encounter.

Halpern: More than 60,000 law enforcement personnel here and abroad have received LEOKA training. For more information visit www.fbi.gov.
