Assemblyman Wants Worker’s Comp for Off-Duty CA Cops Hurt in Vegas Massacre

Monday, October 30, 2017

In response to Southern California police officers being denied injury benefits for wounds they sustained in the Las Vegas mass-shooting, an Anaheim state assemblyman is proposing legislation to require compensation for officers hurt off duty while responding to out-of-state crimes.

Assemblyman Tom Daly, D-Anaheim, plans to introduce legislation “to eliminate any ambiguity in the law” after Orange County rejected workers’ compensation claims last week from four of its deputies injured in the Las Vegas shooting.
