PRESS RELEASE

January 7, 2014


Following the indictments of retired MOS accused of social security fraud, PBA President Pat Lynch underscores the importance of those benefits for Police Officers who were truly incapacitated.

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“While we do not condone anyone filing false claims, we caution everyone to recognize that there are serious psychological illnesses resulting from the devastating work performed by first responders following the attack on the World Trade Center and in performing the dangerous and difficult work of police officers.  These benefits are essential to the very survival of those first responders who have truly been incapacitated by the horror of 9/11 exposures and the stresses of big city policing.”
