Police officers across the country could soon get mental health assistance thanks to a new law President Donald Trump signed Wednesday.
The "Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act" would make grants available to police agencies so they can offer counseling programs.
The bipartisan effort was proposed by Senators Joe Donnelly and Todd Young. The law is based off a similar program already in place at the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
