Criminal legal insurance

Legal representation, on and off duty, 24 hours a day. For no more than £7.28 a month.

Many PCS members work closely with the public in situations which can sometimes cause conflict, especially those working in enforcement or custodial duties. These incidents can result in criminal proceedings.

With no guarantee your employer will provide you with legal expenses indemnity and the continued erosion of the right to legal aid, members can find themselves potentially exposed and forced to fund their own defence against criminal charges.

Exclusively for PCS members, Criminal Legal Insurance provides:

Criminal Prosecution Defence

  • Legal representation at any interview relating to criminal defence matters
  • Legal representation in Magistrates Court
  • All legal advice costs covered following the Crown Court Means Test if the case proceeds to Crown Court

Civil Legal Defence

  • All advice costs covered to defend your legal rights if civil actions are brought against you under the unlawful discrimination and Data Protection Act

Representation at IPCC Complaints

  • Representation at Public Inquiries and Inquests
  • All cover is subject to reasonable prospects of success.
