Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (November 28) upon passage of H.R. 2228, the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act of 2017:

“The job of a law enforcement officer is taxing both physically and mentally,” Westerman said. “Passage of the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act gives the Justice Department the ability to grant funds to state and local police departments for mental health pilot programs at law enforcement agencies. I was proud to vote for this important bill and support the men and women in blue.”
