Watch important program broadcasts over the coming days.

As part of the Destination Zero initiative, a series of critical programs will be held to provide lifesaving information of the highest relevance to our law enforcement officers, based on trends found in the leading line-of-duty death categories of firearms, traffic, and health-related circumstances.

On January 12, 13, and 14, in-depth one-on-one interviews will be held between leaders in law enforcement and the medical field from federal agencies, major cities, and counties to address the growing threats against officers based on our annual report data. These highly focused conversations will include resources and strategies for officers before, during, and after events, such as resilience and preparation, training and response, and support when recovering from traumatic and tragic events.
