Excerpt:


The Uniform Crime Reports Division of the FBI publishes data
annually on law enforcement officers killed or assaulted in
the United States and its territories. Agencies participating
in the Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA)
provided data on 681 assaults on Federal officers that occurred
during 2004. A total of 144, or 21%, of these assaults
resulted in personal injury to the officer. No Federal officers
were feloniously killed during the year.

Nearly half of assaults on Federal officers occurred during
patrol or guard duty (47%). Twenty percent were assaulted
making an arrest or serving a summons and 13% while
conducting an investigation or search.

About 39% of these assaults involved the use of personal
weapons such as hands, fists, or feet. About 20% involved
threats, 10% firearms, and 10% the use a vehicle. Among
assaults resulting in injury to an officer, 69% involved
personal weapons, 13% a vehicle, and 5% a firearm.
