NPS Officers Lost in the Line of Duty
- 8 minutes, 10 seconds
To the 139 DOI officers who have died in the line of duty since the Department's founding in 1849, we pay special tribute. Many were officers of the National Park Service (NPS). A black band is worn across our badges as a sign of respect and mourning for a line of duty death of an employee who was engaged in life-saving actions, killed feloniously, or engaged in direct fire suppression actions. Pictured here are NPS Law Enforcement Officers lost in the line of duty.
