Since 1995, Idaho Peace Officers Memorial Ceremonies have honored Idaho law enforcement officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. In 2017, 129 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty. Last year's number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as a result of "felonious acts" - 46 - also was a decrease from 2016, when 66 officers were killed in line-of-duty incidents, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
