Ceremonial Signing of H.B. 288: Line of Duty Death Benefits for Peace Officers & Firefighters

Yesterday Governor Herbert ceremonially signed H.B. 288: Line of Duty Death Benefits for Peace Officers & Firefighters. Representative Ray, Nannette Wride, Shante Johnson, the Utah Highway Patrol,  Utah’s Sheriffs, and Police Chiefs and Firefighters worked tirelessly during the 2015 General Legislative Session to ensure the widows and families of fallen officers had access to help and information. H.B. 288 provides advocates, insurance coverage, and financial assistance to the fallen officers’ families. This legislation provides for the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Congratulations to all those who contributed to this remarkable piece of legislation.
