Inspired by her Uncle Nick, an officer with the Cicero (IL) Police Department, she applied with the Aurora (CO) Police Department when she was 25.

We get at least one call a week from a federal agent who needs legal advice or representation but doesn’t have FEDS Protection in place. FEDS Protection is a defense-based insurance policy – it must be in place prior to an incident that could result in an allegation or claim. Your agency reimburses all federal law enforcement officers up to half the cost of this insurance – so please – no more of the following excuses. FEDS Protection works just like other insurance policies - if you don’t have coverage in place prior to an incident leading to an allegation, claim or suit, coverage will be denied.
