Public Safety Protection Plan

Welcome to the AFSCME Public Safety Protection Plan (PSPP)

The PSPP is a partnership between AFSCME Advantage and the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) that provides a unique benefit for our AFSCME public safety members — giving you on-the-job protection and added peace-of-mind!

The Public Safety Protection Plan provides:

  • Access to legal representation for on-the-job civil and criminal action. This representation is administered through the PORAC Legal Defense Fund (LDF). PORAC is the largest and most successful legal defense fund in the country and is managed by public safety officers for public safety officers.
  • Million dollar coverage for a few dollars. There is no cap on benefits. Whether the case costs $100,000 to defend or $1,000,000, LDF keeps its long-standing promise of never skimping when your life is on the line.
  • 24/7 emergency legal response. The most critical time for legal representation are the minutes and hours immediately following a critical incident. Emergency legal representation by experienced panel attorneys is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
