Help Protect America’s Peace Officers

April 18, 2016

Dear HAPCOA Members,

Traffic-related incidents remain the leading cause of death and injury for America’s law enforcement officers. These incidents have taken the lives of 5,709 peace officers throughout our nation’s history, with more added each year. Please take part in the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund’s annual Drive Safely Campaign and get a free Drive Safely bumper sticker.

Too many officers directing traffic or helping citizens at accident scenes are tragically struck and killed by speeding, distracted, or drunk drivers. You can play a positive role in promoting traffic safety by:

Your action is important. For the third year in a row, traffic-related incidents were the leading cause of officer fatalities in the first half of 2015. Thirty officers were killed as a result of traffic-related incidents, increasing 20 percent from the same period in 2014.

If we all do our part, we can help protect our protectors on the road.

Thank you for all you do to help honor America’s law enforcement officers especially our fallen heroes.

Craig W. Floyd,
President & CEO
