I am super excited to announce we received a $10,000 donation from FOP Tucson Lodge #1 for our Fallen Officer Monument Project. They sent us this donation to help purchase more statues in the future. The long term goal for this site is to have a statue built for every one of the local agencies in the Yuma area. Their donation is a huge first step in that direction. We can't thank the members of the Tucson FOP Lodge enough for their generosity!
If you suffered an injury by accident during the course and scope of your employment, you must file a claim with the Industrial Commission of Arizona within one year from the date of injury or you will be forever barred from filing a claim. Not all injuries, however, occur immediately. Some claims occur after months or years of repeated work activities and multiple reinjuries. These types of claims or injuries are known as “gradual onset injuries” and are the most difficult claims to file. Many injured workers use the wrong date of injury when filing a gradual onset workers’ compensation claim which results in their claims being denied.

We all know taking care of your physcial health is very important in this job. Just as important is taking care of your mental health. This profession lays scars on our mind. We must always be mindful of the effects these scars leave, and take care of ourselves. Gone are the days when an officer fears reaching out for help. Those who embrace mental health wellbeing end up being a better parent, spouse, officer/ deputy, and retire with no evil reminders that creep around in their heads.
