IN CELEBRATION OF NATIONAL POLICE WEEK, INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY PRESENTS THE SECOND INSTALLMENT OF "IN THE LINE OF FIRE": A SPECIAL THAT EXPLORES EMOTIONAL STORIES FROM OFFICERS ON THE FRONTLINE ACROSS THE NATION

-- Premiering on Sunday, May 15 at 8/7C, IN THE LINE OF FIRE is Presented by CBS News Legal Analyst and Former Trial Attorney Rikki Klieman --

(New York, N.Y.) -Across the United States every day, brave men and women in blue risk their lives to serve and protect all Americans. For the second year, Investigation Discovery (ID) turns its cameras on the professionals to explore the critical role so many officers play in protecting and serving. Presented by legal analyst Rikki Klieman, IN THE LINE OF FIRE brings viewers into the heat of the moment to experience the stunning split-second decisions that changed the course of events and tells, first-hand, emotional stories of survival from the police officers themselves. In celebration of National Police Week (Sunday, May 15-Saturday, May 21), IN THE LINE OF FIRE is set to premiere exclusively on ID on Sunday, May 15 at 8/7c.

"With daily headlines denouncing the negative and harmful acts of law enforcement, I feel it's my duty to provide viewers with the stories of the overwhelming majority of the professionals who are decent, ethical and courageous," said Klieman. "These are the men and women in blue who answer the call to protect and serve, and it is my honor to tell their stories."

IN THE LINE OF FIRE follows Klieman as she travels coast to coast to uncover the dangers officers face every day in varied circumstances and the split second decisions that change lives. The stories featured this year include:

Officer Ann Carrizales

Stafford Police Department (Stafford, TX)

Officer Ann Carrizales is described by everyone in her hometown of Stafford, Texas as a super mom, super wife and super cop. No stranger to tough situations, Carrizales was a former military police officer in the U.S. Marines, and the first woman on the Marine Corp boxing team. Three years ago, during a routine traffic stop, Carrizales approached a car with three men inside when one opened fire, striking her once in the face and again in the chest. Despite her injuries, Carrizales pursued the men in a 20-mile chase.

Officer Keith Borders

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (Las Vegas, NV)

A domestic dispute turns into a violent gun battle as now-retired Officer Keith Borders does everything he can to shield an innocent woman. Borders responds to the call in the middle of the night without backup, and gunfight ensues that lasts for more than 20 minutes and leaves the perpetrator dead.

Officer Juan Pichardo

New York Police Department (New York, NY)

Off-duty police officer Juan Pichardo was working at his family's car dealership when two men come in demanding money. The men tie up the officer along with two other hostages. Pichardo breaks free of ties and is able to wrestle the suspects for their gun. During an intense struggle, Pichardo is shot in the leg, but holds down one of the robbers until help arrives.

IN THE LINE OF FIRE is produced by Atlas Media with Bruce David Klein and Lorri Leighton as executive producers and Lisa Bryant as co-executive producer. For Investigation Discovery, Lorna Thomas is the executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
