Expanding on previous research (Quinet et al., 1997) that analyzed line of duty deaths and injury to police from 1960-1992, this paper expands analysis through 2001. In addition to replicating previous analysis on felonious and non-felonious line of duty deaths, this paper also offers some analysis on the data and policy implications of the line of duty police deaths of September 11, 2001.
