CHICAGO — A new lottery game in Illinois will help the families of LEOs killed or severely injured in the line of duty.

On Monday, Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a bill into law that will create the new scratch-off game, the Associated Press reported. Lawmakers approved the bill earlier this year.

The game’s proceeds will go directly to three dedicated police memorial funds. The funds raised will be used to build memorials and parks, hold annual memorial commemorations, provide scholarships for the children of fallen or injured LEOs and provide body armor to officers.

Rep. Jim Durkin, who sponsored the measure, said the legislation will ensure there will be more money provided to the LEOs’ families, without relying on more state funding.

The law will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2019.
