The Public Safety Officer Support Act of 2022 (H.R. 6943) was recently approved unanimously by the House Judiciary Committee. The following statement can be attributed to Brian O’Hare, President of the FBI Agents Association:

“The FBI Agents Association (FBIAA), representing more than 14,000 active and retired FBI Special Agents, strongly endorses the Public Safety Officer Support Act of 2022 (H.R. 6943).  FBI Agents and other federal law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to protect the American public from national security and criminal threats. H.R. 6943 authorizes disability and death benefits for federal law enforcement officers who suffer from mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorders or acute stress disorders. Improving mental health support and care for Special Agents has been a priority for the FBIAA, and we urge passage of this legislation as soon as possible.”
