According to data compiled by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, 127 law enforcement officers died in 2012 while on duty. The leading cause of death for these officers were traffic-related incidents. Traffic stops can be inherently dangerous for law enforcement professionals due to the presence of traffic, drivers who are not paying attention and violent individuals in vehicles that may try to evade detection or arrest. However, by taking proactive measures during each stage of the stop, law enforcement professionals may be able to reduce the number of deaths and injuries that occur during traffic stops.
