The Gift for all Federal Law Enforcement Officers
It’s December. The time of year when many of us think about peace and joy – and money. Would you like something that your agency helps pay for? Would you like something that makes you feel good for a whole year? Would you like something that actually gave you a sense of relief after the purchase – with no remorse next month?
We have just the thing – FEDS Protection. If you never have to use it, you’ll have paid for Peace of Mind for a whole year. If you do need it, just one time, it will be a gift you never forget and money you never regret spending. Let’s face it, it doesn’t cost anything to make an allegation against you, but it could cost you a whole lot to defend yourself against those allegations.
Consider someone making a typical claim against a law enforcement officer. That someone doesn’t need any money to post that claim on traditional or social media. No money is needed to get a civil rights group to advocate on his or her behalf. And some attorneys don’t require any money down for certain types of claims.
Now consider that you just got a phone call advising you that you are the target of a serious allegation. Have you considered who you would call if someone accused you of wrongdoing or even a Bivens action? Do you know what it feels like to have your actions and those of your coworkers, and your agency under the microscope? If you find yourself the target of someone’s misguided allegations, you will feel, rightly or wrongly, that you are guilty until proven innocent especially if the investigator is trying to make a case for his/her own gain, the media is trying to sensationalize a news report, the agency is trying to distance itself, or a politician is trying to make a point or rally a base.
If someone makes an allegation against you, and you have FEDS Protection, you will know exactly who to call and what to expect. Your attorney will advise you of your legal rights and obligations and also the parameter of the law under which you’ve been accused; prepare you for the agency administration or investigation process; attend the investigative interview with you; defend you against allegations; and defend you in any resulting disciplinary action. FEDS protection also indemnifies you if you are held liable for a judgement.
It’s December. Consider the Peace of Mind you’ll get the whole year through for just $145 per year, after agency reimbursement. Enrollment takes 5 minutes – call 866.955.FEDS or visit www.fedsprotection.com.
