Some Police Unions Pushing For Worker’s Comp For PTSD

The AP (5/16, Gurman) reported that some US police unions “are pushing for officers to be able to collect workers’ compensation benefits if they suffer post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD], whether they got it from the general stress of police work or from responding to a deadly shooting rampage.” However, “some police chiefs and municipal leaders oppose lawmakers’ efforts,” saying that “they are concerned the benefits would strain budgets and lead to frivolous claims.”
