Comment On President Obama’s Signing Of S.1132, The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act Improvements Act

“I commend President Obama for signing this important bill for the benefit of our Nation’s hardworking law enforcement officers.  The dedicated public servants who are trained to uphold the law and keep the peace deserve our support, not just in their professional lives, but also when they are off-duty or retire.  When Congress passed the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act in 2004, we showed our confidence in the men and women who protect our communities, our states and the country.  By signing this bill, the Obama administration stands with Congress in strong support of Federal and state law enforcement officers across the country.”
