Officer Safety

The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum’s Center for Officer Safety and Wellness (OSW) coordinates multiple initiatives aimed at reducing line-of-duty fatalities and improving officer safety and wellness. These OSW efforts include: traffic safety initiatives for the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA); educational programs for the COPS Office; the Destination Zero Initiative and the National Officer Safety and Wellness Awards for the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and our work in officer suicide prevention through the SAFLEO project partnering with the Institute for Intergovernmental Research.
