SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputies and other officers are wearing black mourning bands across their badges, again.
Every time there is a shooting involving officers they are reminded of the dangers they face.
Lt. Erik Raney said, "The job of a law enforcement officer is dangerous, we do the best we can to make sure every situation is as safe as possible through our training experience and partnerships, but sometimes we face situations that are just unavoidable."
He said it is hard on families.
Raney said they also make sure to wear their protective gear in the line of duty.
