FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 14, 2020


WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Larry Cosme National President of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) issued the following press release in response to the signing of the America’s First Responders Act into law:

"Since the pandemic began, FLEOA has worked tirelessly and purposefully to ensure every law enforcement officer’s health needs have been prioritized and their families would be cared for. The signing of this bill into law ensures that families of frontline federal, state, and local law enforcement officers who succumb to COVID-19 are protected and provided for. This act ensures that any first responder’s family that is in need of PSOB benefits will have access to them, allowing law enforcement officers to work a little easier knowing that their nation has their back,” said President Cosme.

FLEOA is the nation’s largest non-partisan, not-for-profit professional association representing more than 28,000 federal law enforcement officers and agents across 65 federal agencies.
