PORAC LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
Protecting the Rights & Benefits of Our Members since 1974
The PORAC Legal Defense Fund is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most respected public safety legal plan. We are committed to protecting the rights and benefits of our more-than 143,000 nationwide members. We take pride in the fact that geographic boundaries do not limit our ability to effectively assist members — our membership extends to all 50 states and US territories.
PORAC LDF recognizes that when a public safety officer is targeted, our members need not be burdened with the worry of paying for a high-quality defense. Whether the case costs $100,000 or over a $1,000,000, LDF always stands shoulder to shoulder alongside its members with the necessary funding.
Run by Cops,
The Board of Trustees is comprised of five active working peace officers who volunteer their time to serve on the board. They are neither retired nor working in the private sector, or paid to be a Trustee.
We pay attorneys’ fees and all related costs including expert witnesses, transcripts, filing fees, jury consultants, etc. Members have no out-of-pocket costs.
Our member associations need to make responsible choices about the level of protection for their members. We offer a range of different plans to suit the needs of public safety unions. Our flexible plan options provide protection from a broad array of civil, criminal, administrative and peace officer certification revocation actions.
