AFGE's Law Enforcement Office of the Year Border Patrol Agent Jonathan Morales

AFGE’s Law Enforcement Office of the Year Award goes to…Border Patrol Agent Jonathan Morales who saved lives at the Chabad of Poway Synagogue shooting in San Diego last year.

Law enforcement officers take pride in protecting our communities. But inadequate staffing, equipment, and training are a constant strain on your ability to accomplish the mission safely. The AFGE Law Enforcement Committee is a team of correctional officers, police officers, border patrol agents, and other law enforcement officers who understand your unique needs and make it a priority to promote policies that ensure your on-the-job safety, advance your career, and protect your job security.

AFGE Law Enforcement Officer Workforce Issues and Legislation 

AFGE strongly supports the following legislation directly related to federal law enforcement officers. 

  • H.R. 1195 and S. 473 Law Enforcement Officer Equity Act would grant all federal law enforcement officers (LEOs) access to federal benefits including 6C special retirement benefits due to the level of training required and greater danger present in their profession. Introduced by Representative Peter King (NY-2) in the House and Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) in the Senate. House cosponsors Senate cosponsors 
  • H.R.1156 - LEOSA Reform Act would improve the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act and provisions relating to the carrying of concealed weapons by law enforcement officers.  This bill permits certain qualified current and retired law enforcement officers to carry firearms in certain federal facilities.
