LISTEN NOW! (Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM!) As President Trump has been doing since he took the office in the White House, he has delivered on yet another campaign promise as he carries out his support of our law enforcement by signing the Public Safety Officer Benefit Improvement Act Bill into law. We always want to make sure that the families of those who serve is taken care of, and this bill does exactly that. As the President shared many encouraging remarks of our law enforcement, he was surrounded by many men and women in uniform.
“We will always support the incredible men and women of law enforcement. I can speak very strongly for myself and for Mike Pence, our Vice President. We are behind you 100 percent. Every single day America’s law enforcement officers, firefighters, first responders, and their families make tremendous sacrifices for their communities and for their nation.” So often, we can take our law enforcement for granted, and forget that it is only when we need them the most that they are first on our mind. The President shares the accurate reality of what they endure each and every day. “When a home is threatened, when danger visits our doorstep, when innocent lives are on the line, Americans turn to their courageous officers of law enforcement because we know they are here to serve and protect us all. They sacrifice every day to keep us safe.”
Not only is there a sacrifice paid everyday as uniforms across America are donned as these brave men and women begin their patrols and shifts in their respective areas, but there is an absolute sacrifice when one is killed in the line of duty. “Our duty as Americans is to honor their service and sacrifice and to protect those who protect us. Today I am proud to sign two laws to help fulfill that very, very sacred commitment.” The President then begins to share how the Public Safety Officer Benefit Improvement Act will help those who have been injured in the line of duty, as well as their families. “The Public Safety Officers Benefits Improvement Act will help disabled officers and firefighters and families of those who fall in the line of duty quickly receive all of the benefits they so justly deserve.” The President continued to share, “For too long injured officers have suffered and the children of fallen officers have put their dreams of college on hold, while bureaucracy delayed crucial benefits, made it impossible for their families. No longer. It’s unacceptable, and it’s going to end today. In fact, it’s going to end in about one minute.”
This bill is not just about getting the needed benefits to our law enforcement, first responders, and their families, but it is about cutting the red tape of bureaucracy so that these families get their benefits quickly. “This bill speeds approval times by giving state and local enforcement a greater role in determining eligibility and lets applicants track the progress of their claims online.”
This is important. It is awesome to see the President, once again, put his words of promise to action, with pen and paper. The disrespect of law enforcement has been outspoken and appeared to be celebrated over the last 8 years. What we are witnessing is a complete 180-degree shift from how things were being carried out during the previous administration. When we understand the role that our law enforcement plays in our culture, we understand the vitality for every one of them. Paul Harvey does an outstanding job describing the intricate details of what it’s like to carry out this lifestyle.
Honor and respect is not something that should be given only at certain times. It is what God calls us to render at all times. As Romans 13:6-7 shares, “This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”
It is so important that we stand with our law enforcement men and women and the families of those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty.
