About this project

Web Scraping was used to extract data from Officer Down Memorial Page. The data analysis shows that the top causes of police deaths are COVID, 9/11-related illness, gunfire, heart attack, and car crash. COVID and 9/11 emerge as leading causes even though they only occurred in a specific year. Moreover, there is a seasonality in police deaths, increasing from start to middle of the year and decreasing from middle to end, with the 2nd quarter of the year as the peak. Lastly, Texas, New York, Florida, California, and Georgia have the highest police deaths.
