Abstract: Enacted in 1976 and implemented by the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program (PSOB) serves the broad public safety community, with benefits to include death, disability, and education. The PSOB provides a wide-range of no-cost support to public safety agencies in areas such as training and technical assistance offering vital information and support to survivors and agencies of America' fallen public safety officers. Tools and checklists are provided to agencies and survivors to assist in streamlining the PSOB filing process for public safety officers and survivors of fallen officers. Also, in 2003, program coverage was expanded under the Hometown Heroes Survivors Benefits Act to include certain heart attack and stroke circumstances.
