As Federal Court Security Officers, you are the frontline of defense in federal court facilities. Are you emotionally, financially and legally prepared to defend yourself if you are the subject of an allegation or lawsuit for doing your job? Firearm and arrest powers expose you to the very same allegations and lawsuits as federal law enforcement officers; with FEDS Protection, you can receive the same protection as federal law enforcement officers- and at the same price.
FEDS Protection provides you with your own attorney to defend against allegations arising out of your federal CSO contract services and pays damages if you are held liable. Whether you are contracted through AKAL Security, Inc., Walden Security, Paragon Systems, Centerra Group, or APSI-Centerra, you are eligible for the FEDS Professional Liability Insurance policy.
FEDS Protection is Affordable:
$290 Annual Premium for the $1,000,000 Policy
$390 Annual Premium for the $2,000,000 Policy
Even if the allegation is baseless, the ordeal can be truly frightening and defending yourself can quickly drain your bank account and take a personal toll on you and your family. As the #1 most recommended provider by federal law enforcement associations, FEDS understands the unique circumstances that only officers who deal with potentially dangerous individuals can truly appreciate. This type of workplace unfortunately results in an environment that makes even the best officers vulnerable to lawsuits.
With FEDS Protection:
You are appointed your own personal attorney to defend against work related allegations, claims and lawsuits. The FEDS professional liability policy provides coverage for Administrative & Disciplinary Matters, Personal Capacity Lawsuits / Bivens Actions, and Criminal Investigations that you could be subjected to while performing your job.
The FEDS policy is underwritten and issued on a group basis by Federal Employee Defense Services, Inc. through the Public Employees Purchasing Group (PEPG) domiciled in Washington, DC. As such, Insured members become members of the PEPG, entitling you to group rates and subject to master policy aggregates, terms and conditions.
Qualified law enforcement officers are also eligible for LEOSA coverage. FEDS optional LEOSA coverage provides civil coverage for federal LEOs for any "legal and justified” act, error or omission while protecting themselves, their families, or others from criminals and terrorists under the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act of 2004 and the LEOSA Improvement Act of 2010.
While these Acts allow qualified law enforcement officers to take action, they do not shield from civil and criminal liability exposure. Civil exposure becomes a concern for federal LEOs if the agency finds the officer acting outside of scope, outside of interest of the U.S. to defend, and/or outside of agency LEOSA authority for off-duty incidents. The coverage was developed with the help of LEOSA expert attorneys who defended active officer LEOSA situations, to fill the LEOSA civil exposure gaps similar to the on-duty civil liability gaps of federal LEOs.
LEOSA/State CCW coverage is available only to employees who are certified as "qualified active law enforcement officers” of a government agency as defined by and in accordance with 18 USC 926 Band 18 USC 926C.
