If you are on line and reading this, turn on CBS - Katie Couric. They're doing a special tonight on officers killed in the line of duty, and why the numbers are so high this year.....

DANGER INCREASES!
CALLS TO SERVICE INCREASE IN MOST AREAS. STAFFING ISSUES DUE TO CALL TO Millitary SERVICE, and retirement. Priority needs to be there for law enforcement funding for staff, training, and equipment to keep up with the bad guys!


Never Forget the members of public safety who have died and continue to suffer from past meth lab exposure!

Over the past decade, on average an officer is killed in the line of duty every 53 hours, with an average of 163 giving their lives in defense of their communities each year. More than 17000 are seriously injured in the line of duty each year.

Yes, WAY too many have been lost. Texas alone has now lost 7 in less than a month.
