ISELIN, NJ – Law enforcement organizations reported that 154 officers died in the line of duty in 2004, nearly half of them in traffic-related accidents, according to the National Association of Fleet Administrators’ Fleet Focus e-mail newsletter.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and Concerns of Police Survivors said the statistics for 2004 were compiled from reports through Dec. 24.

Seventy-two local, state, and federal officers died from traffic-related accidents while 57 officers died from shootings, according to the organizations. The number of deaths this year was 6 percent higher than the 145 reported killed in 2003, but nearly equaled the 153 killed in 2002, according to the groups' statistics.
