LEO Near Miss is a reporting system for law enforcement officers initiated by the Police Foundation in 2013. A near miss, or close call, is any incident which could have resulted in a law enforcement officer’s serious injury or death. The LEO Near Miss Reporting System and Database is a platform which enables sworn law enforcement officers from across the country to share the details of incidents in which an officer was almost seriously injured or killed, providing valuable takeaways and lessons learned for improving officer safety. Stories shared through the system are now available in video format.
Sharing these stories is an anonymous, secure, nonpunitive, and confidential process.
