This article lists British police officers killed in the line of duty since 1900.

Thousands of police officers in Britain are believed to have died during the course of their duties, but this article includes only those who were killed as a direct result of a crime or while attempting to prevent, stop or solve a specific criminal act. The list omits those who died in more common or regular circumstances, such as in road traffic accidents or air raids during the Second World War.[1]

The list also omits the more than 300 officers of the former Royal Ulster Constabulary[2] and current Police Service of Northern Ireland who were killed during the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
