As COVID-19 continues to impact communities across the country, police officers are enforcing new local mandates in addition to their regular responsibilities. When assessing line of duty deaths (LODDs) for 2020, COVID-19 was found to cause more LODDs for law enforcement officers than all other causes combined.
Research by the Officer Down Memorial Page and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) linked COVID-19 to more than 100 line of duty deaths so far this year.
To protect citizens and officers, safety and prevention must be top of mind. That’s why Vector Solutions created multiple resources for COVID-19 and training courses available to law enforcement agencies at no cost.
