Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: October 18, 2017


Time is running out to register by Oct. 20 for NAPO’s Annual Fall Seminar: Navigating the New Union Environment and the new Supreme Court case to make all states “right to work”; NAPO and officers across the country gained another win when the House Judiciary Committee approved the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act (S. 867 / H.R. 2228), sponsored by Congresswoman Susan Brooks (R-IN) and Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Todd Young (R-IN). NAPO worked closely with Senator Donnelly on introducing this important legislation, which will help law enforcement agencies establish or enhance mental health care services for their officers.
