The mindset, activity and sophistication of federal inmates often force BOP officials to make difficult, split-second decisions under unique circumstances that only employees who deal with incarcerated individuals can truly appreciate. This type of workplace unfortunately results in an environment that makes even the best employees vulnerable to prisoner lawsuits and investigations into alleged misconduct. These vulnerabilities are the reasons professional liability insurance is necessary for BOP employees.
Congress enacted special legislation requiring reimbursement up to half the cost of FEDS Protection for all BOP officials. This demonstrates Congress’ official support and belief that officers have a sense of security while making the tough decisions that are part of the job. Our $1,000,000 policy is available for $290, only $145 after agency reimbursement. We also offer a $2,000,000 policy available for $390 annually.
