Police Shooting Stats

Last week, in reaction to our Copwatch feature, we got a letter asking us to compare national numbers of officer-involved shootings with local numbers. I’m not sure how useful an analysis like that would be. Every city is different. I did manage to track down the Albuquerque Police Department’s record since 2004. Here’s what it looks like:

2004: 4 shootings, 2 fatal

2005: 3 shootings, 2 fatal

2006: 5 shootings, 1 fatal

2007: 8 shootings, 4 fatal

2008: 5 shootings, 2 fatal

2009: 6 shootings, 3 fatal

2010: 11 shootings, 7 fatal

The news desk also is working on a story examining officer-involved shootings in similarly sized cities, their rates of violent crime and their police training techniques. Look for a follow-up in the coming weeks.
