Utah FOP Legal Coverage -
The Utah FOP Plan costs $260 per year* and is the only plan that provides on duty AND off duty coverage. Our belief is that you can’t keep your job in an administrative hearing if you lose the criminal side. We also control our own costs.
Our General Counsel
We have contracted with Bret W. Rawson, PC for all of the legal needs under this plan. This plan includes an off-duty criminal benefit (except in cases of corruption), unlimited administrative coverage, and local lodge support on legal matters. This plan was created in August 2013.
Bret is a certified Force Science Analyst and is the most experienced OICI (Officer Involved Critical Incident) attorney in the state, personally handling over 50 officer-involved shootings to date. His knowledge and expertise CENTERS around the police profession, being a reserve police officer himself. The American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys recognized Bret as one of 2015's 10 Best Criminal Law Attorneys for Client Satisfaction.
Hylant Legal Coverage -
The Hylant Plan costs $300 per year and gives the choice of several different attorneys. It is also an FOP run program, except the costs are controlled by a national board, not local. You have the option of picking an attorney, but you do not have off-duty coverage for things like: Domestic Violence allegations, DUI, assault, etc.
*Coverage does not cover acts of corruption.
Note - Some lodges may choose to administer BOTH plans for the needs/desires of their members. This is a decision made with each lodge individually.
