ARC LEGAL PROVIDES 1 IN 3 POLICE MEMBERS

Arc Legal now provides legal protection to 1 in 3 members of Police federations in England and Wales.

Four new schemes position Arc as a leading provider

Arc Legal Assistance (Arc), the bespoke legal costs insurance provider, today announces it now arranges legal protection cover for 1 in 3 members of Police Federations in England and Wales, having been appointed on a further four schemes.

Arc has been appointed to provide bespoke legal expenses insurance cover for members of the Federations covering the West Midlands, Devon and Cornwall, Warwickshire and Essex. The cover is for off duty matters and forms part of a package of benefits offered to individual members by George Burrows, part of the Heath Lambert group.

The Arc policy, designed to complement on duty protection provided by the Federations themselves, is already available to members of a number of other Federations, including the Metropolitan Police, the UK's largest. These latest appointments bring the total number of members covered to around 40,000.

Frank O' Malley, Director of Arc said: "Arc has developed a clear niche in providing cover for Police Federations. These schemes build on our reputation for designing and providing bespoke legal expenses packages, with relevant underwriting, that specifically cater for the business objectives of our clients."

Rob Constable, Managing Director of George Burrows said: "We are focused on providing 'best in market' cover so using an experienced provider such as Arc is important for us. Their understanding of the market and ability to develop a package that really meets our client's needs is second to none."

Arc's Police Federation product provides off duty Police Officers and dependants with cover for costs relating to contractual disputes, personal injury, employment disputes, disputes over or damage to property, and prosecution defence including those relating to motor vehicles. Members will also have access to a tax advice telephone service.
