In today’s climate, as a police officer, you face heightened scrutiny, potential allegations of wrongdoing, and increased investigations that can threaten your livelihood and assets and your family’s financial health in the event of a lawsuit. Examples of claims include everything from allegations of excessive force in shooting or beating an unarmed suspect when that force was necessary to accomplish the lawful restraint objective, to cruel-and-unusual punishment such as excessive restraint or isolation, deprivation of food or other necessities.
Add to this, states and municipalities across the country are considering no longer providing police officers and law enforcement professionals with Liability insurance protection.
As in the event they are found liable for excessive force in a lawsuit. For example, in June, Colorado passed a law stating that officers could be on the hook for 5% of any settlement or judgment, up to $25,000, reached in a civil lawsuit over their actions if their employer finds they acted in bad faith.
Even if you’re covered by the municipality, there may coverage gaps exposing your to risk. Also, some of the police reform bills Congress is considering will eliminate qualified immunity for state and local police and other law enforcement, further increasing your liability risks.
