WASHINGTON — This Police Week, the FBI is asking for tips or any help finding those responsible for the deaths of law enforcement officers.
The FBI is highlighting eight cases that left six officers dead and three wounded. The cases date back as far as 1971 and as recently as 2013.
Either the perpetrators are unknown or the suspects and those convicted of the crimes have escaped or evaded capture.
On May 15, law enforcement will come together at the 38th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service to remember officers who lost their lives while serving their communities as one of the events during Police Week.
“During Police Week, we honor the memory of those we have lost and intensify our commitment to bring to justice those responsible for killing or injuring members of the law enforcement community,” said FBI Executive Assistant Director Amy Hess. “It is imperative that we continue all efforts to find—and ultimately hold accountable—those fugitives. We are hopeful the focused attention to these cases will generate new tips for the FBI and our partners.”
