Public Safety Memorial Fund Board

Public Safety Memorial Fund supports officers and families in time of need 

Established by the Legislature in 1999, the Oregon Public Safety Memorial Fund is administered and staffed by DPSST, in conjunction with a Governor-appointed PSMF Board of public safety constituents. The fund provides financial assistance to public safety officers who are permanently and totally disabled as a result of a line of duty injury, and to family members of the public safety officers who have been killed or permanently and totally disabled in the line of duty.

PSMF OAR Change – Informational Only


Attention Public Safety Memorial Fund Beneficiaries and Applicants,

On May 20, 2024, the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) filed a proposed rule change for OAR 259-070-0010 on behalf of the Public Safety Memorial Fund (PSMF) Board. This rule is related to eligibility for fund benefits.

The proposed rule change adds recognition of the addition of OLCC regulatory specialists beginning January 1, 2024, pursuant to Senate Bill 699 (2023). The proposed rule change also includes additions to recognize all of the historical eligibility changes.

The proposed rule changes do not affect current beneficiaries or past eligibility determinations.

A copy of the proposed rule change is available on the DPSST website.

DPSST expects that the proposed rule will be adopted as a permanent rule change on or after July 8, 2024.
