Police Professional Liability
 
Why is a Police Professional Liability policy needed when the city or county already has a General Liability policy?  Police officers and their departments can face claims of negligence, failure to protect, false arrests or civil rights violations.  These suits can lead to costly litigation for law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve. Police Professional Insurance can help mitigate financial loss so a police department can continue to protect and serve their fellow citizens.  Our policy ensures coverage for acts, errors and omissions which occur while officers perform their professional duties.
 
The balance of rights between the lawbreaker and the law has changed.  Courts have made it easier for criminals and suspects to bring suits against law enforcement and criminal justice personnel.  Awards have skyrocketed and the courts have recognized extended liability of the defendants’ superiors, including the mayor, municipal manager and executives.  To make matters worse, the number of suits has increased dramatically.  While many cases do not result in settlements or judgements, all have to be defended.  At the price of litigation today, this can be devastating to municipal budgets.

Eligible risks include: Cities, Boroughs, Villages, Towns, Townships, County Governments with populations less than 100,000.
