Liability Insurance for Federal Employees and Contractors

Federal Court Security Officers Now Eligible for FEDS Protection

Press Release

Washington, DC (October 1, 2019) - As the frontline of defense in federal court facilities, the daily interactions of Court Security Officers (CSOs) with sovereign citizens/anti-government extremists, gang members and other violent offenders have resulted in the need for FEDS Protection to extend the very same professional liability insurance (PLI) coverage available for Federal LEOs to Federal CSOs. Personal threats and exposures continue to escalate against judges, law enforcement officers (LEOs), and other court officials. PLI often becomes necessary when there is an event that results in safety concerns, public alarm, injury, death, oversight or a security vulnerability or breach.

As a Federal CSO, you must have coverage in place to defend and indemnify (pay damages) if you are held liable for allegations arising out of your contract services. Whether you are contracted through Paragon Systems, Centerra Group, AKAL Security, or Walden Security, you are eligible for the coverage – at the same cost of $290 annually (plus taxes/fees) available to Federal LEOs.

Since the threat clearly doesn’t end when you walk out of the court each day, FEDS also extends its LEOSA coverage to Federal CSOs. While the LEOSA Acts allow qualified LEOs to act, they do not shield from civil and criminal liability exposure which becomes a concern if you are found to be acting outside of scope or outside of the interest of the U.S. to defend.

FEDS understands the unique circumstances that only officers who deal with potentially dangerous individuals can truly appreciate. This type of work unfortunately results in an environment that makes even the best officers vulnerable to lawsuits.
