Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: April 10, 2018

NAPO supports the Opioid Overdose Reduction Act of 2018 (H.R. 4955). This bill would provide certain protections from civil liability with respect to the emergency administration of opioid overdose drugs; NAPO also pledged support for the Safer Streets Act of 2018 (H.R. 4767), which establishes a grant program under the Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP) to help jurisdictions with high rates of violent crime with prevention and enforcement efforts; Eric’s Law (S. 2389) would require the impaneling of a new jury if a federal jury fails to unanimously recommend the death penalty for the murder of a law enforcement officer; The Postal Police Officers Association (PPOA) has been fighting for greater pay and benefits for its members, who patrol in and around select postal facilities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The PPOA has filed an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaint against the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) asserting discrimination against Postal Police Officers who feel they are underpaid, overworked and undervalued; NAPO’s updated “Sponsor/Cosponsor” spreadsheet and latest “Legislative Positions” documents below; and the Omni Shoreham Hotel is sold out due to Police Week activities, so The Wardman Park Marriott and the Washington Marriott Hotels, located nearby, are offering competitive rates for Police Week and NAPO has reserved a block of hotel rooms at the River Inn Hotel in Washington D.C.
