Law enforcement officers are exposed to significant legal threats from every direction: from citizens, employers, supervisors, co-workers and governmental agencies. Recognizing the seriousness of the situation, since 1974 the Massachusetts Police Association and the firm of Reardon, Joyce & Akerson, P.C. have offered officers the ability to provide themselves with the highest level of individualized protection possible for $300.00 plus processing fee. That amount covers every fee, cost and expense necessary to defend an officer. New Members will be charged a prorated amount from the date of signup through the end of the calendar year in which they signup. All memberships will then renew on January 1st of the following year.
