President Signs Bills Benefiting First Responders

Goal also includes helping law enforcement officers. 

Three bipartisan bills have been signed into law by President Biden. They are the Protecting America’s First Responders Act of 2021, the Confidentiality Opportunities for Peer Support Counseling Act, and the Jaime Zapata and Victor Federal Officer and Employees Protection Act – all of which passed Congress with overwhelming and almost unanimous support.  

In remarks at the bills’ signing, the president said they “share a goal of helping law enforcement officers and first responders be the protectors and the partners our communities need.” 

“When you look at what our communities need, and what our law enforcement is being asked to do, it’s going to require more resources, not fewer resources,” he explained. “That’s why my administration is investing in the community policing we know works.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the president and his administration would seek God’s direction on further police or law enforcement reforms.
  • For Congress in their efforts to support law enforcement and first responders in the passage of bills. 
  • For a blessing on the men and women who serve in law enforcement, and for those who are among the nation’s first responders in emergencies.
