There have been 64 law enforcement officers shot and killed nationwide in 2016 — the most in five years.
In the past decade, an average of 53 police shooting deaths occurred annually.
Does this year's increase indicate that there is less respect for law enforcement these days?
Some police officers say it's difficult to tell others it's what they do for a living. In a recent episode of the podcast "This American Life," show producer Miki Meek talked with two police officers in South Florida the day after Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. The officers said they are hopeful a new president will help restore law and order.
