Ohio House Passes Bill Extending Benefits To Killed or Disabled Peace Officers and their Families

February 26, 2016 - 12:34 PM

COLUMBUS - State Representative Margaret Ann Ruhl (R-Mount Vernon) proudly announced that the Ohio House of Representatives has passed House Bill 305 this week.

A major component of the legislation affects the Volunteer Peace Officers’ Dependents Fund. The fund, established in Senate Bill 11, which was passed and signed in December of 2015, will be used to provide death benefits to the survivors of volunteer peace officers killed in the line of duty, as well as disability benefits to officers who are disabled in the line of duty. Ruhl was instrumental in adding an amendment to HB 305 that extends those benefits retroactively. Under the legislation, officers and their families who were affected dating back to December 22, 2015 will be eligible for benefits. That provision is intended to honor the memory of Officer Thomas Cottrell, a volunteer with the Danville Police Department. Cottrell was killed in Knox County on January 17th of this year.

“I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Officer Thomas Cottrell,” Ruhl said. “It was with a heavy heart that I supported this amendment, and I hope that it will provide  some peace of mind to Officer Cottrell’s loved ones during this difficult time. Danville was blessed to have such a tremendous individual serving the community, and he will be greatly missed.”

The bill now awaits consideration in the Ohio Senate.
