Attacks on LAPD Officers Up 42 Percent Over Last Year

June 29, 2011  | 

Assaults on LAPD officers are up 42 percent from the same period last year, bringing the total to 97 attacks, Chief Charlie Beck said. Officer-involved shootings are up by 40 percent.

Among the attacks was the shooting of Officer Steve Jenkins, a K-9 handler who survived being shot in the jaw and shoulder on April 4 by a domestic violence suspect in Sylmar, sending police into a daylong standoff before the suspect was killed.

Jenkins was released from the hospital after three weeks of surgery and recovery.

The year 2010 was one of the deadliest on record for law enforcement deaths nationwide, with 162 officers killed in the line of duty, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
