Police and Law Enforcement News

It's been a tough week.

In the past seven days, ten law enforcement officers from around the country lost their lives.

It began last Friday on October 20th in Fayette County, Tennessee.  Deputy Jeremy Reynolds was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a "shots fired" call.

The following day Police Officer Dan Picagli of the New Haven Police Department in Connecticut was struck by a car while directing traffic.  He held on for four days but did succumb to his injuries.

Later the same day Officer Robert Langley of the University of Mississippi Campus Police Department was dragged by a car during a traffic stop.  He was flown to Memphis Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

On Sunday the 22nd Deputy Margena Nunez of the Lee County Sheriff's Office in Florida was struck by a drunk driver while directing traffic at a dangerous intersection where a previous fatal accident had occurred.

Over in Los Angeles on the same day, LAPD Officer Landon Dorris was investigating an accident when he was fatally struck by a car.  He had joined LAPD three years earlier after serving with the California Highway Patrol for six years.

Also on the same day Police Officer Patrick Kramer of the West Yellowstone Police Department in Montana died when his vehicle skidded on ice while responding to an accident.

A day later, Police Officer Mary Smith of the Fairfield Police Department was exiting her car to check out a suspicious vehicle when a suspect opened fire on her.  A second officer was also shot but survived.

On the 23rd Police Officer Thomas Wood of the Maywood PD in Illinois was sitting in his patrol car when someone approached and shot him four times.

On the 26th Sheriff James Johnson of the Sheridan County Sheriffs Office in Kansas was shot dead while interviewing an EDP.

Finally, Deputy Jeffrey V. Mitchell of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department was shot and killed on Friday during a motor vehicle stop.

This job is for real.  A lot of children and spouses and friends were left behind this week.  Don't get complacent with calls, traffic assignments or any part of this job.
