GUEST,curious BS: Police deaths. (26) BS: Police deaths. 19 Nov 05

A policewoman was shot and killed yesterday in the UK while on duty. Her and another female officer were called to an incident at a travel agents, and didn't know it was an armed hold up. They were both shot, one fatally.

It threw up some interesting stats on the later News programme. In the last twenty years in UK 38 police officers have been killed on duty.

13 shot
9 stabbed
5 hit by vehicle
and I can't recall how the others died.

Now this isn't a pro/con gun stand. I just wondered if anyone mathematically minded could compare that number of deaths to an area in US similar in size and diversity to UK? It seemed a 'low' figure, but is it?
