Is your department prepared for a LODD?
It's a call no chief of police wants to receive — the call that reveals an officer has been killed in the line of duty. In an ideal world, the answer to the headline of this article would be "no, we are not prepared," because ideally LODDs would never happen in the first place. But the sad reality is that they do happen. Unfortunately, 23 times this year alone (at the time of publishing), chiefs of police have gotten "that" call and police departments across the United States have had to face a loss of one of their own. Though it’s a scenario no department wants to face, it’s one that requires discussion and preplanning.
