Editor's Note:

The holiday season is here, and Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund reminds us in a letter sent this week that Christmas and New Year's can be among the most dangerous times of the year for LEOs. “Just consider that, throughout history, the chances of an officer being killed on New Year's Eve is 30 percent higher (65 total deaths) than the average day (50 total deaths), and on Christmas the number of line of duty deaths is 56 percent higher (78 total deaths) than normal,” Floyd writes.

The PoliceOne team wishes everyone in law enforcement a safe and happy holiday season. Be well, do good, go get ‘em.
