Shootings and accidents aren’t the only dangers for police officers. “Job-related illnesses, such as heart attacks, are an ongoing problem in law enforcement," Nick Breul, director of the memorial fund's Officers Safety and Wellness Program, said in an email statement.

Funeral services are today for the officer gunned down in Douglas County last weekend. Sheriff's Deputy Zackari Parrish was 29. There are many outstanding questions about what happened and why the shooter opened fire on Parrish and other officers, four of whom were injured, along with two civilians. But the incident prompted Colorado Matters to look into the leading causes of officer deaths on duty. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, across the country there were 135 officer deaths on duty in 2016, the last year for which complete data is available.

Hammond police escort girl, 5, to chemotherapy treatment

A 5-year-old cancer patient from Hammond, Indiana is getting her second-to-last chemo treatment, and she's getting a special escort to the hospital in Indianapolis.
- By Megan Hickey, Hammond, Ind. (WLS) September 10, 2018

Monday, a 5-year-old cancer patient from Hammond, Indiana is getting her second-to-last chemo treatment, and she's getting a special escort to the hospital in Indianapolis.

Sammy left for Indianapolis with her group of Hammond police officer escorts and she was wide awake and so excited for her trip.

She arrived to find police lights flashing in front of the police department. She gave everyone a big hug and showed us her special outfit and talked about her first ever ride in a police squad car.

She was diagnosed with eye cancer when she was just 3 months old. She ultimately had to have one eye replaced, and then unfortunately the cancer returned.

Sammy's mom Diana Barr said she's overwhelmed by the support.

"She laughed, she said 'Mommy, have you ever been in a cop car?' I said, 'Nope, I guess this is a first time for everything,'" she said.

After the appointment, they're hoping to take her to lunch and maybe a little shopping trip. Sammy said she wants a teddy bear with a bow on it like the one she's wearing Monday.
