This bill establishes a compensation program for State corrections officers, juvenile corrections officers, and juvenile detention officers who suffer bodily injury as the result of a riot or assault by the inmates or detainees under their custody and care. The bill also establishes a compensation program for parole officers who suffer bodily injury as the result of an assault committed by an adult or juvenile parolee under their supervision. Under the provisions of the bill, injured officers would be entitled to their salary until their workmen's compensation payments begin. Once their workmen's compensation payments begin, the injured officers would be entitled to regular supplemental payments from their employer. The amount of these payments would be sufficient, when added to the injured officer's workmen's compensation, to equal his or her net wages at the time of the injury. These supplemental payments are to continue as long as the officer remains a State corrections officer, juvenile corrections officer, juvenile detention officer, or parole officer and continues to receive workmen's compensation for the injury. Finally, the bill specifies that these supplemental payments are not to negate or impair any fringe benefits afforded an injured officer under the terms of a collective bargaining agreement, contract, or statute and that these fringe benefits are to remain in full force and effect during the time that officer is receiving the supplemental payments authorized under the bill. Additionally the bill's provisions apply to State Human Services police officers, State conservation officers, and State park police officers who suffer bodily injury as the result of an assault while engaged in the arrest or transportation of a suspect or person in their custody.
