FBI: Number of Law Enforcement Officers Killed Declined in 2015

Fewer law enforcement officers were killed as a result of criminal acts in 2015 compared to the year before, the FBI said.

The FBI reports that 51 officers were killed in 2015, and 41 were killed in 2014.

Those officers were killed during traffic stops, tactical operations, ambushes, domestic disturbance calls and while handling inmates.

Of those killed, 38 died from gunshots. More than half were on vehicle patrol.

That does not include the 45 law enforcement officers killed accidentally in the line of duty, often from automobile accidents.

Additionally, more than 50,000 officers were assaulted in 2015.

I’m confused. If, as the story states, there were 51 officers killed in 2015 and 41 who were killed in 2014, how does that reconcile with headline that says that the number of officers killed declined in 2015??
