Abdul Nasir’s Answer

Accidents, death, and other things on a job happen quite frequently some are recorded and some not, it is important to focus more on the numerous causes. Most accidents happen where the causes are unknown increasing they're perpetually or known yet in charge seems not to remember dealing with a known cause. Deaths certainly leave a mark on the minds of employees and if due to work conditions a solution(s) happen(s) respectively. Conversely, job environment(s) where no specific precaution or meaning full work arrangement is visible at times tend to have unfrequent accidents and other things.

A lot of it depends on the city you live in. Larger cities tend to have more crime, accidents and death then smaller cities. A few years ago a lot of Dallas officers quit their jobs and moved to Austin and get the jobs here because of the difference in crimes and safety to their well being between the two cities.

Police officers have a higher risk of incurring a work-related injury or illness than most other occupations. On average, 115 police and sheriff’s patrol officers suffered fatal work injuries each year from 2003 to 2014. Another 30,990 nonfatal injuries involving days away from work were reported for police and sheriff’s patrol officers on average each year from 2009 to 2014.
