From three Pittsburgh cops gunned down in one day to a U.S. border patrol agent ambushed by Mexican teens, the year 2009 was an especially deadly one for local and federal law enforcement, according to the FBI.

In its preliminary report, the FBI found a 17 percent jump in the number of officers “feloniously killed” in the line of duty in 2009, comparing the toll of 48 with the previous year’s 41. Additionally, 47 officers were accidentally killed in 2009, or 21 fewer than the year before.

Of the officers feloniously or criminally killed last year, 15 died in ambush situations and nine died during an arrest, the report said. On top of that, eight died during traffic stops or pursuits, five died while responding to disturbance calls, four while investigating suspicious activities, one while dealing with a person with mental illness, two while transporting prisoners and four in other situations.
