Law & Order, the two go hand in hand. That is why supporting the work of the state's law enforcement officers is a top priority for Attorney General Jim Hood and his staff. The Office of the Attorney General provides training on a wide range of issues including Cyber Crime, Crime Victims Services, Domestic Violence, Consumer Protection, Senior Financial Fraud, School Violence Prevention and etc. Whatever the need, investigatorial, prosecutorial or otherwise, the Office of the Attorney General is proud to assist our state's law enforcement officers in their duties.
Effective July 1, 2006, the MS Attorney Generals Office began accepting applications for benefits from The Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters Disability Benefits Trust Fund. Any actively employed law enforcement officer or fire fighter who is accidentally or intentionally injured in the line of duty as the direct result of a single incident is eligible to receive benefits. (Important note: Chronic or repetitive injury is not covered and employees of independent contractors are excluded).
