Since 1917, the New York State Police have lost 144 members in the line of duty.

This year, State Police will recognize three members, Sergeant/Station Commander Charles R. Salaway, Trooper Nicholas F. Clark and Sergeant Jeremy J. VanNostrand. On June 9, 2018, Sergeant Salaway passed away from an illness stemming from his assignment at the World Trade Center site following the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.  Trooper Clark was killed on July 2, 2018, when he was shot responding to a report of a suicidal male. Sergeant VanNostrand was killed on November 27, 2018. He was reporting to work when his vehicle was struck from behind by a box truck, sending his car into oncoming traffic. He later died from his injuries at the hospital.
