New York Police Department chief spokesman Paul Browne says the department started keeping comparable data on firearms discharges in 1971, when officers killed 93 people. There were 12 police shooting deaths in 2009. The previous low was nine in 2005. The latest statistics were released Wednesday. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the low number of shooting deaths is a tribute to the police officers' training and restraint and to a safer city.
