The Providing Child Care for Police Officers Act:
Aims to address the nationwide police staffing shortage by making it easier for parents to enter the field.
“Access to quality, reliable childcare is essential to recruitment and retention of the best, most representative, and diverse police force we can have, particularly as we seek to attract more women to the ranks. Research shows us that female officers develop deeper trust with communities, use less force, and are less frequently identified in complaints and lawsuits, but childcare concerns remain one of the biggest hurdles, according to the 30×30 initiative. San Diego is leading the way to expand childcare opportunities for police officers and I am proud to support those efforts at the federal level.”
The Social Security Fairness Act:
Repeals two provisions of the Social Security Act that unfairly reduce or eliminate Social Security benefits for millions of Americans who have devoted much of their careers to public service — including police officers, firefighters, federal employees, and educators.
