Number of police officers shot dead in the UK by decade

I came across a Wikipedia page listing the names of all UK police officers killed in the line of duty. Given that shootings are quite rare in the UK I thought it would be worth looking at how many have been killed each decade.

That's 68 police officers shot dead in 110 years.
