So far this year, 65 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty, a 30 percent increase over the same period last year, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. President and CEO Craig Floyd says the leading cause of officer deaths is traffic fatalities.

The number of police officers and federal agents who died in the line of duty has jumped this year, an increase largely attributable to a spike in car crashes and job-related illnesses, according to a new report. The report, by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, comes as the nation approaches the anniversaries of July 2016 ambush killings that left eight officers dead in Dallas and Baton Rouge, fanning a furious national debate over anti-cop sentiment.

Officer's act of kindness caught on video

A homeless man needed a little help to land a job. So this officer gave him a shave

Going above and beyond the call of duty, one Florida officer helped a man get a clean shave so he could land a job. The act of kindness was caught on camera and shared on social media.
- By Amanda Jackson, CNN July 24, 2018

Tallahassee Police Officer Tony Carlson said he noticed a man having some issues with his razor outside of a gas station on Sunday.

"He asked me if I knew anything about fixing a razor cause it was broken," said Officer Carlson in a video posted on Monday. "I looked at it and it was missing a screw. Obviously, I didn't have another screw so I just tighten up the other one to the point it would work."

The man, whom Carlson identified only as Phil, was homeless. He told the officer he needed to shave so he could get a job at a local fast food restaurant. Now with the working razor, Phil tried shaving, but without a mirror, it was hard to do. So Officer Carlson shaved his beard for him.

Greg Wallenfelsz happened to be at the gas station as the scene was unfolding, and he captured it on video.

"I thought it would be nice to share with others this selfless act of kindness this officer showed this stranger," he told CNN.

Kelly Duvall's daughter also took a picture outside the gas station, and Kelly shared it on social media and with the police department.

"One officer's simple act of kindness is touching so many lives, it is amazing," Duvall told CNN.
