Post Police Line Of Duty Deaths Rebound In 2009 


http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-07-12-slain_N.htm

Cops killed in the line of duty are up in 2009, but the numbers remain relatively low compared to historic averages.

Officials cite a number of reasons for the overall decline. One that isn't mentioned is the ongoing improvements in traumatic injury care, which now saves a number of people who would otherwise have died and has also lowered the overall homicide rate for the nation. Unfortunately, the reduced number of deaths can feed the illusion that overall social violence is declining, which would be a false conclusion from the statistical info.
