In The Line of Duty
Honoring Those Who Protect
According to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, 1,635 police officers have been killed in the line of duty in the past ten years and on average, a police officer is killed once every 53.5 hours or 163 officers per year. According to Ohio COPS (Concerns Of Police Survivors), Ohio ranks 5th in the nation for the number of police officers killed in the line of duty.
The Ohio Association of Chief’s of Police is a premier organization by and for Ohio’s Police Chiefs and as the OACP represents our police leaders, our leaders represent the many police agencies and officers within our local communities.
In light of such representation it is appropriate that when one of our officers gives the ultimate sacrifice of his or her life, the Ohio Association of Chief’s of Police will honor that sacrifice as a symbol from all of Ohio’s police chiefs of the commitment and dedication made to our profession and for the people of Ohio.
