Memorial To The Fallen Police From 2011 to the Present

I have written several articles law enforcement. A list of links have been provided at bottom of this article for your convenience. This article will, however address different aspects on Law Enforcement.

Unfortunately due to the sheer numbers of fallen officers throughout the US, I am having to separate this posting into two sections. It is a sad state in our society that the numbers are so large, that this is even necessary. In 2001 the police were heroes, now they have become villains. This trend needs to stop and be reversed before all is lost in this country. That is the reason why I am listing every fallen officer, including the K-9 division, so that their sacrifices will not be forgotten, and also to hopefully shame our country some as well. We can no longer treat these gallant officers as expendable.
