Legal advice and legal expenses cover
In order to ensure that special constables have legal protection, the Home Office provides legal assistance cover currently through Arc Legal Assistance. This is available to all special constables, free of charge, and includes personal injury cover including financial compensation for damages. It also includes cover for legal advice as well as representation at criminal proceedings.
The Special Constable Legal Fees Insurance Scheme is now administered by the Home Office. For more information and summary of cover, please email: [email protected]
