For example, UE is expanding its Seamless Coverage endorsement to include clear protection for liability associated with police and security professionals. Beginning on April 1, 2017, upon policy issuance, the seamless coverage endorsement provided to all qualifying members will specifically address these protections for actions of police or security staff:

  • Wrongful acts

  • Violation of property rights
  • Allegations of discrimination
  • Use of mace or pepper spray
  • Defense costs for allegation of dishonest and fraudulent acts
