AFSCME Advantage, in coordination with American Union Benefit Services, is pleased to offer the AFSCME Public Safety Protection Program.

AFSCME continues to fight for better pay and benefits, for safe workplaces, and to uphold the standards of professionalism for our public safety members across the country.

This benefit provides added protection for on the job legal actions, as well as security for family members. The low semi-annual or annual premium is available only to public safety members of AFSCME.

The Public Safety Protection Program includes:

  • Access to legal representation for on-the-job civil and criminal action. This representation is administered through the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) Legal Defense Fund. PORAC is the largest and most successful legal defense fund in the country and is managed by public safety officers for public safety officers.

To receive the benefits of the Public Safety Protection Program, a local or local unit (group benefits) must enroll in the Public Safety Officers of AFSCME Association (PSOAA). Enrollment in PSOAA is free, and joining PSOAA and purchasing the Public Safety Protection Program is a simple process.
