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.
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.
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.
