The Memorial Fund maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, which contains the names of 21,541 officers who have died in the line of duty throughout US history.
There are approximately 900,000 law enforcement officers now in the U.S. Since the first recorded death in 1791, over 20,000 law enforcement officers-representing cities, counties, states, and federal agencies in the United States-have died in the line of duty. "These officers willingly put their lives on the line each day when they leave home, never knowing if they will return safely to their families or if their grieving loved ones will hear their names called at the next annual Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Service".
"Our law enforcement officers have our deepest gratitude for their unwavering dedication to protecting our lives, our property and our liberty", Burgum said.
