    ​Law Enforcement Consultants' Services

    TAC Risk Management Pool (TAC RMP) members in the Law Enforcement Liability or Public Officials Liability programs receive Law Enforcement (LE) Consultant services.

    Law enforcement is a significant business operation for all Texas counties. Consequently, this is also one of the largest areas of risk. LE Consultants primarily work to help TAC RMP members manage this risk in two areas: patrol and detention facilities. Each has its own set of unique risks and requires specific training to mitigate exposures.

    LE Consultants have law enforcement experience, often having served as sheriffs in Texas counties, and are well prepared to offer information on risks and exposures related to law enforcement operations. Law enforcement organizations widely recognize their credibility and frequently ask them to speak at their conferences.

    Key Services Provided

    Technical Assistance: LE Consultants provide valuable technical assistance to TAC RMP members in the areas of management, jail operations, fleet management and regulatory compliance. Their assistance helps counties maintain detention facilities in compliance with the Texas Commission on Jail Standards and other federal and state regulations.

    Policy Review: LE Consultants also review members’ policies and procedures. The main purpose of the review is to ensure policies meet regulatory compliance and to identify policy gaps.

    Claim Analysis: Through this service, LE Consultants identify and evaluate members’ recent losses and formulate possible solutions to prevent similar future incidents.

    On-Site Training: LE Consultants share their extensive knowledge in the field of law enforcement, jail operations and regulatory compliance. Courses are designed to meet the members’ needs and to increase awareness among county employees. Additional risk control and risk management training available.

    LE Policy Service Program: Provide critical task model policies for Law Enforcement and Jail Operations to county law enforcement to help counties reduce liability risks, lower claims exposure, prevent losses and enhance the performance of county officers and employees.
