Law enforcement ensuranceCNA Public Entity Program

At NSA, we understand the plight of law enforcement officials who get sued for acts committed or not committed in the performance of their duties. That's why we endorse the CNA Public Entity Program. The law enforcement policy coverage form is custom tailored to provide maximum protection for you, your officers, employees and agency.   

Coverage is written through CNA, one of the nation's largest and oldest insurance companies in the U.S. (A.M. Best "A"). CNA has provided insurance to public entities for decades.
