The coverage is the first of its kind to be provided by the British Transport Police Federation for its 2,500 members.
The cover funds representation of members subject to allegations that fall outside of support provided by the police federation. This includes legal costs relating to criminal and civil proceedings, contractual disputes relating to goods and services, pursuing personal injury claims, and advice and representation at interviews under caution and at disciplinary hearings. Arc Legal’s cover for criminal defence has been expanded under the scheme to include allegations arising from historic incidents, provided the allegation first comes to light after the insurance has started.
The policy is underwritten by AmTrust Europe Limited.
The British Transport Police Federation scheme continues Arc Legal’s partnership with George Burrows, a leading provider of group insurance to police federations and part of the Arthur J. Gallagher group.
“The British Transport Police Federation scheme is evidence of our continued growth in this specialist insurance market. It demonstrates not only our commitment to this market, but also our abilities to develop bespoke schemes to respond to the very specific needs of police federation members.”
“Arc Legal’s ability to create specific packages of coverage has enabled them to grow a strong presence and recognition from police federations around the UK. This new scheme reflects their comprehensive understanding of the challenges and needs of this ever-important insurance sector.”
