Abstract

The 23 reported incidents are cross-categorized by 1) type of activity and type of weapon used; 2) presence or absence of injury and type of weapon used; 3) type of activity and assignment; 4) type of activity, type of weapon used, and type of assignment; 5) time of assault and agency type; 6) type of activity and time of assault; 7) reporting agency and type of weapon; 8) reporting agency and month of assault; and 9) type of activity and grand totals for each year since 1980. In 1991, no officer was killed in the line of duty. Only four of the assaults involved weapons other than personal body parts. About half (52 percent) occurred between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.; six occurred in April, and five in May. Since 1980, when there were 51 assaults, annual totals have generally declined, to 24 in 1988, and 23 in each of the years 1989, 1990, and 1991. 10 tables
