Shield Services

​​​​​Law enforcement activities are a significant liability exposure for any city or town. That's why the League's Risk Management Services is committ​ed to providing law enforcement agencies the resources they need to help manage these risks.

The League's Shield Services is available to Law Enforcement & Fire Department service agencies who belong to the Property & Casualty Trust and Workers' Compensation Trust.

You're making transformational investments for your community. We're here to help.

Our Shield Services staff includes professionals with extensive law enforcement management experience and are available to assist our members with complex policing issues. ​We also consult with the League's Police Chiefs Advisory Committee to identify emerging trends and training needs. ​​

The League’s  Police Chiefs Advisory Committee was formed in 2013 as a tool to help Property & Casualty Trust and Workers' Compensation Trust members reduce officer injuries, vehicle accidents, and liability claims. The committee includes 12 police chiefs from across the state, from larger and small town alike. 

The chiefs meet regularly with the League’s risk control, claims, and underwriting staff. This working group is responsible for implementing the many training programs and services within the League's Shield Services, including the Law Enforcement Risk Review, which has seen tremendous success and has been endorsed by the North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police. ​
