As part of its continued focus on officer safety, IACP has partnered with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice to identify and document the causes and magnitude of officer injuries, develop practical resources to assist law enforcement agencies, recognize and respond to officer injury vulnerabilities, and disseminate resources to the law enforcement community.
In order to first accomplish these goals, a 12-month national study of 18 law enforcement agencies was conducted to thoroughly examine and quantify the total spectrum of injuries sustained by officers. One state was chosen from each of five geographic regions to obtain a representative sample of data from across the nation. Agencies of varying size, and type were selected to participate from each state to provide a realistic account of injury trends. Information from each injury was collected and sent to IACP for analysis in order to better comprehend the nature of injuries and develop strategies for prevention. Injury tracking study resources are available on this page for download.
