Description

Enacted in 1976, the Public Safety Officers’ Benefits (PSOB) Program is a unique effort of BJA; the PSOB Office; local, state, tribal, and federal public safety agencies; and national organizations to provide death, disability, and education benefits to those eligible for the program. This collaboration relies heavily on the ability of the PSOB Office to work with national stakeholders to maintain and enhance a wide range of effective survivor resources, including national peer support and counseling programs, which assist the families of public safety officers who have fallen in the line of duty.

The goal of this initiative is to provide survivor peer support and counseling services and resources to survivors of fallen law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders nationwide.
