2020 has been an awful year for law enforcement professionals. As anti-police movements such as Black Lives Matter and “defund the police” continue to castigate law enforcement groups as inherently racist, public distrust in the profession continues to grow. Along with that distrust has reportedly come historic levels of violence against police officers. According to the National Fraternal Order of Police, the number of officers shot from Jan. 1, 2020 to Nov. 30, 2020, is up 7 percent from last year’s historic number, which was up 29 percent from 2018. Forty-four of the officers shot this year were fatally wounded.
