FBI stats on Police deaths

These are stats from 2013 talking about police officer deaths and line-of-duty assaults. Note how the small population, 76 deaths, is talked about in absolute terms (i.e. number of deaths of a certain type) and the large population, assaults, uses percentages. Think about why it’s done that way.
