Legal Defense Plan
The MNFOP is pleased to announce we have made improvements to our Legal Defense Plan effective November 1, 2021. We have decided to pair the National Legal Defense Plan for on duty incidents with our existing State Legal Plan to cover the same levels of off duty and other coverages. Our plan continues to be the only legal defense plan in Minnesota that covers on and off duty incidents for criminal charges. A major benefit of pairing with the National Plan is there will no longer be a cap on duty related experts and expenses. Experts in officer involved shootings have become increasingly crucial and expensive. In addition, the National plan also covers appeals. Our state attorney Rob Fowler will continue to administer our off duty coverage part of the plan, and he also has been and continues to be an attorney on our National Plan. We are working to add more qualified attorneys for you to chose from.
Below you will find coverage documents for both the National Legal Defense Plan, as well as our state plan. The FOP strives to provide you the best coverage possible as an officer. That is why we are charging one flat rate for both coverages. Complete the form below to join today. Any member in good standing is eligible to enroll in the plan. Your coverage will start once your local lodge application has been received and approved by the Grand Lodge and payment has been processed.
