INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY ASSOCIATION
Together we are stronger

2020 Line of Duty Deaths

The International Public Safety Association captures sworn and civilian public safety line of duty deaths in the United States and internationally.

228 Fatalities Reported in 2020*

*does not include comprehensive suicide data, includes COVID-19 cases

The IPSA recognizes there are no international definitions for what constitutes a line of duty death. There is no international clearinghouse that captures all line of duty deaths. Given that we are an international organization, we will do our best to recognize fallen heroes as we learn about them. Our data includes off-duty fatalities (e.g. killed before/after shift, etc).
