According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 900,000 Americans are dedicated to a noble calling: fighting crime. Tragically, the Police Officers Safety Association reports that about 150 police officers die in the line of duty every year. To the surprise of many, the vast majority of these deaths isn’t caused by gunfire, but traffic stops. In fact, since 2001, 154 officers have lost their lives during otherwise routine traffic stops. In Texas alone, 22 officers have died during traffic stops since January of 2010.
