Officers Killed in the Line of Duty

Heroism. Valor. In Memoriam.

Every day, the members of the LAPD put their lives on the line.

Some days are uneventful. Other days are full of danger. And some days, their dedication to the job leads them to perform great acts of heroism.

This area of the LAPD website celebrates those officers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
