For Law Enforcement Only

In addition to the annual Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted report and OSAT, the LEOKA Data Collection has additional resources available for law enforcement via a Special Interest Group that can be accessed through the FBI’s Law Enforcement Enterprise Portal (LEEP).

These resources include:

  • A training calendar
  • Three major case studies:
    • Killed in the Line of Duty - A study of selected felonious killings of law enforcement officers examining offender motives in an attempt to answer why these attacks occur.
    • In the Line of Fire - A study of felonious assaults on law enforcement officers which examines both the offender motives and officer perceptions of the assault to improve officer safety.
    • Violent Encounters - A culmination of the two previous studies focused on felonious assaults and killings of law enforcement critically examining officer perceptions, offender motives, and the circumstances that brought them together.
  • A series of articles on safety issues (i.e., foot pursuits, arrest situations, preventing assaults, accidental deaths)
  • Additional statistics
  • A video on speed control in vehicle pursuits
  • LEOKA forms
