Editorial: Public Safety Insurance Fund

Public safety servants have jobs that aren't like yours and mine.  We ask them to, and they willingly, put themselves in danger to protect you and me.  And we all say we appreciate them and what they do.

Seven years ago two Montgomery businessmen decided to do something tangible to show their appreciation by persuading other local business men and women to contribute to a fund that would provide life insurance policies for these officers.

The Public Safety Insurance Fund was formed and is still going strong.   It provides a $10,000 policy due to death for any reason at any time and a $50,000 Accidental Death Policy while not in the line of duty.  It covers Montgomery Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies, Firefighters and Alabama State Troopers.   To date 13 families of deceased officers have benefited from the fund.

The Montgomery fund also triggered the creation of similar funds in Prattville, Selma and Lee County.   And recently a group in Panama City, Panama in Central America expressed interest in creating a similar fund there.

We applaud the business members of the PSIF who continue to contribute each year to keep the fund going.  And, even in these tough economic times, we urge other businesses and individuals to do so.

One day, when every community in America has a Public Safety Insurance Fund, we can proudly say that it all started here in Montgomery, Alabama.
