Also provided are in-depth analyses of two studies which were concluded in 1992 and 1997, and resulted in the publications “Killed in the Line of Duty” and “In the Line of Fire.” The objectives of these studies were to identify elements in certain situations which led to the ultimate felonious deaths and serious injuries of police officers.
