One of the conventional thoughts of wisdom has been that as the economy headed south, crime would rise throughout the nation. The so called economic – crime correlation. In many parts of the nation the opposite is true crime has not increased dramatically.

However Police Officer’s deaths in the performance of duty has increased compared to last year. USA Today reports that for the first half of 2009 there has been a 20% increase in Police Officer line of duty deaths.
