Slain officer's family to receive financial help
Under the Public Safety Officers’ Benefits Act, signed into law by President Gerald Ford in 1977, Arkell’s wife will receive a death benefit of $333,605.
New Hampshire also enacted legislation that calls for the treasurer to pay $100,000 to the family of an officer killed in the line of duty.
He said a family can sometimes wait a year or more to receive the government benefits, so his group, which consists of more than 1,000 members, gives the family the money as soon as possible,.
The Hundred Club also provides up to $26,000 annually to cover college expenses for four years for the officer’s dependents.
Bucci said The Hundred Club keeps in touch with the families throughout the years, providing emotional support along with the financial help.
