Seeking Justice: Violence Against Law Enforcement

Seeking Tips, Pursuing Justice

How You Can Help the FBI Solve These Crimes Against Law Enforcement Officers

This Police Week, the FBI is seeking the public's help with eight cases that led to the deaths of six law enforcement officers and resulted in serious injuries to three others. They have asked that our Chapter members help spread this information as widely as possible.

The cases date back as far as 1971 and as recently as 2013. In all eight cases, justice has not yet been served. Either the perpetrators are unknown or the person suspected or convicted of the crime has escaped or evaded capture.

"During Police Week, we honor the memory of those we have lost and intensify our commitment to bring to justice those responsible for killing or injuring members of the law enforcement community," said FBI Executive Assistant Director Amy Hess. "It is imperative that we continue all efforts to find-and ultimately hold accountable-those fugitives. We are hopeful the focused attention to these cases will generate new tips for the FBI and our partners."
