This is a comprehensive list of Iraqi security forces members killed in the Iraq War. There are also totals here for each year.
The "Iraq Index" of the Brookings Institution also keeps a running total of Iraqi security force casualties.
The highest reported number of policemen and soldiers killed in the war has been 15,196 for the period between January 2004 and December 2009 (with the exceptions of April 2004 and March 2009). With the previously reported 260 policemen and 23 Kurdish peshmerga fighters killed in 2003, and 67 dead in March 2009, and a further 1,100 deaths in 2010, and 897 deaths in 2011, the total number of security forces members killed can be estimated to be at least 17,543.
