New Police Reform Law Has No Impact on IRMA Coverage
IRMA has been monitoring the police reform legislation for many months, including hosting a webinar with experts, attending ILACP events and reviewing the new Safe-T Act (Public Act 101-0652). Based on our review of the new requirements, IRMA’s coverage will not be impacted. In other words, IRMA will continue to defend and indemnify police officers who are named in lawsuits alleging civil rights violations. It should be noted that the new law does not create a new state cause of action.
