Rockwood Launches the Public Servant’s Defense Agency

August 11, 2011

Rockwood Programs, Inc. has established a new subsidiary company – the Public Servant’s Defense Agency (PSDA). This firm will specialize in the provision of professional liability coverage specifically for police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians. A tailored policy form provides defense and indemnity coverage in the event an insured is the target of an administrative, civil, or criminal action.

“In today’s litigious society, allegations leveled against civil servants are becoming more prevalent. State, county, and municipal governments all carry the insurance needed to protect them in case of a suit. But what happens when an individual is singled as a result of their involvement in the underlying event?” said Glenn Clark, president of Rockwood Programs and CPCU.

All claims are adjudicated by a national law firm with more than 30 years’ experience in professional liability litigation. The policy also pays covered judgments and awards levied against the insured, up to the limits of liability.

The PSDA product offers $100,000 of liability for as little as $250 per year. Coverage limits can be increased to $250,000 and further tailored with the addition of optional endorsements. The product is written on both an individual and group basis.
