The Fraternal Order of Police-Legal Plan, Inc. was created by the National F.O.P. to administer the F.O.P. Legal Defense Plan. This program is designed specifically to cover the law enforcement exposures faced by members of the F.O.P.. The Legal Plan pays legal defense costs on behalf of participating members for the following actions and proceedings:
A - Administrative (includes Administrative Off-Duty) Coverage
B - Civil Coverage
C - Criminal
Coverage is provided when a participant is acting within the scope of their law enforcement employment duties. For the law enforcement professional, duty related legal defense protection is a necessity as the frequency and cost of allegations against peace officers continues to rise. The F.O.P. Legal Plan offers you and your lodge members a very affordable and comprehensive coverage plan. Please refer to the options above for additional information on Plan coverages, enrollment and claims services.

Two Coverages - Civil and Criminal together $60.00

As a reminder, all participants must be FOP members in good standing prior to enrolling in the FOP Legal Defense Plan and on a go forward basis. The Plan verifies FOP membership status on all Legal Defense Plan participants. It is the responsibility of the lodge administrator enrolling group participants to make sure they are active FOP members in good standing. If a participant does not meet this criteria, he or she will not be eligible for coverage under the Plan.
