In 2018, six Georgia police officers gave the ultimate sacrifice. They all died in the line of duty while protecting others.
Georgia has lost a total of 722 officers in the line of duty, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, since such records were kept. And December has been the deadliest month in the state over the years.
While the state’s officer-involved shootings have increased since 2017, fewer officers lost their lives. Each is remembered as a hero.
