Criminal legal insurance offers protection for PCS members who work closely with the public.
Your work can sometimes lead to conflict, especially for people 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.
PCS has arranged for members to be able to purchase Criminal Legal Insurance for £7.28 a month. This service is arranged by Stuart Harvey Insurance Brokers Ltd and provided by ARC Legal Assistance Ltd on behalf of AmTrust Europe Ltd.
For more details of the service contact 0345 209 4465, Mon-Fri 8.30am – 5.30pm. Don’t forget to mention that you are a PCS member.
