I have recieved from an Officer at the White House what appears to be additional benefits to law enforcement officers through the Public Safety Officers Benefits Program -Department of Justice. There is no fee for the benefits. Currently if you were to pass in the line of duty the DOJ would conduct an investigation and your family would be able to get over 300K at no charge.
To all members:
The UDLC understands the hardships incurred to our members during the government shutdown and the fact that we do not know when we will be getting our pay checks.
So, to put everyone at ease, here are a couple of items for you:
1) Your UDLC coverage will continue during the shutdown with no loss in benefits.
