From USA Today:

The death toll for police officers, including those fatally shot in the line of duty, is on pace to rise for the second straight year, despite a sustained decline in violent crime across the country, USA TODAY’s Kevin Johnson reports.

Johnson says a midyear report by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, which closely tracks law enforcement fatalities, finds that overall officer deaths are up 14% in 2011, while deadly shootings have increased by 33%.
