Today, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) issued a statement of support for the re-introduction of S. 424, the Law Enforcement Officers’ Equity Act, co-sponsored by Senators Corey Booker (D-NJ) and Rob Portman (R-OH).

The bill would allow federal law enforcement officers who are not covered by the FERS law enforcement officer retirement system, to transition into that system. Currently, due to a technical error, Postal Police Officers, VA Police Officers, FBI Police Officers, and 30,000 others are barred from the FERS law enforcement retirement. This act would correct that issue.

In response to the legislation, FLEOA President Nathan Catura said‎, “It is preposterous that this technical glitch has barred these federal law enforcement officers from their rightful retirement system. They are on the front lines of protecting Americans every day and have earned a law enforcement officers’ retirement.”

Upon introduction of the bill, Senator Booker stated‎, “There is perhaps no harder job in the United States than that of law enforcement officers. Each day, brave men and women work under tremendously stressful conditions to keep our communities safe. From apprehending violent criminals to arresting drug kingpins, these brave men and women in uniform put their lives on the line for a higher cause. We owe them our sincerest gratitude for their service‎.”

FLEOA thanks the Fraternal Order of Police and ‎the Law Enforcement Action Network for their support for this legislation and looks forward to its swift passage.
