FBI Releases Special Report on Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted in the Line of Duty in 2023

Having collected decades of data from agencies across the nation, the FBI ’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program maintains a wealth of statistical information. The FBI is uniquely positioned to use that data for meaningful analysis and highlight the utility of the data collected by the UCR Program.

This special report contains information about incidents that occurred in 2023 in which law enforcement officers were feloniously or accidentally killed or assaulted in the line of duty. This data was voluntarily submitted to the Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA) Data Collection by the FBI's law enforcement partners. To create this report, LEOKA staff analyzed details from the incidents—such as the types of offenses, locations, and weapon types—to identify potential trends in the past five to 10 years. The goal of the LEOKA Data Collection is to compile and publish information about the nation's officers who were killed or assaulted in the line of duty for the benefit of officer safety and public awareness.
