This chapter considers the formative-symbolic paradigm and the themes of survivor psychology as they are reflected in the experiences of police survivors- officers who have had the most profound kind of line-of-duty encounter with their own mortality. It discusses the incidence of mortal combat situations, collegial and official reactions to line-of-duty death, manifestations of survivor psychology among coworkers and partners, and the handling of personal effects.
