STARTS SEPTEMBER 8TH
Directed by Thomas Marchese
Between 2009 and 2011, line-of-duty officer killings in the US rose a staggering 42%, with overall officer deaths increasing over 60%. These numbers rose again through 2014 & 2015, and 2016 saw a 56% increase in officers not only being shot and killed, but targeted, ambushed, and slain in numbers.
Separating politics from statistics, there are countless personal stories going untold beneath these tragic numbers. These fallen heroes deserve a voice, as do their families, loved ones and partners who are struggling to pick up the pieces left behind in the tragedy.
For the past 5 years, a production crew comprised of both film industry and public safety professionals has been traveling to police agencies across the country, large and small, urban and rural, candidly interviewing family members, command staff, line officers, city officials and the public in areas that have lost officers. Along the way, they have captured intimate accounts of heroism and loss. Through the words of those who have lived along side these tragedies, these stories will be told.
