Even as Violent Crime Falls, Killing of Officers Rises

According to statistics compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 72 officers were killed by perpetrators in 2011, a 25 percent increase from the previous year and a 75 percent increase from 2008. The 2011 deaths were the first time that more officers were killed by suspects than car accidents, according to data compiled by the International Association of Chiefs of Police. The number was the highest in nearly two decades, excluding those who died in the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001 and the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.

PoliceOne.com - New reaction-time study addresses what's 'reasonable' in armed-suspect encounters

You are confronting an armed suspect, no cover available. He faces you, with his gun at his side, pointed at the ground. Your gun is aimed at him and you’re ready to shoot.

Anti-Police Initiative 940 Meets Signature Milestone
De-Escalate Washington is using deceptive tactics to gather signatures for Initiative 940, of which the purported intent is to reduce violence in communities. The Washington State Fraternal Order of Police and WACOPS emphatically opposes this initiative. I-940 is redundant of already established laws and destructive to the Law Enforcement community. The initiative campaign attempting to change Washington state's deadly force law, to make it easier to hold police accountable for fatal shootings, has met a signature milestone. Supporters of De-Escalate Washington say they'll now take the 280,000 signatures collected to the Secretary of State's office with the hopes of putting Initiative 940 on the 2018 ballot, or into the next legislative session.
