As part of its public entity package, Trident can provide law enforcement liability coverage for unique exposures such as mutual aid agreements, canine or equine use, and managing detention facilities. Trident also recognizes emerging risks by making coverage available for things like drones and cyberattacks.
2. Online training
In partnership with LocalGovU, Trident provides extensive online training programs to its public entity clients. Among the nearly 150 courses are several that are specifically designed for law enforcement, including courses unique to this learning platform.
Trident has also partnered with OSS Academy, a licensed and well-respected training provider in the law enforcement and corrections communities. Through this program, courses are offered to Trident’s policyholders at preferred rates. OSS Academy’s courses are approved or recognized by many peace officer standards and training boards.

Trident has been working with law enforcement agencies across the country for many years and understands the complexities associated with their operations. Trident’s experienced team of risk control consultants is available to provide assistance and offer a unique perspective that other insurers don’t have.
Trident’s Ask the Risk Control Manager, for example, is a way for law enforcement officials to ask risk management-related questions anytime through an online portal. Trident responds to all inquiries in less than 24 hours.
5. Superior claims service
As a leading public entity insurance program, the Trident claims staff has adjudicated more than 100,000 governmental entity claims in a majority of U.S. states.
Trident understands the unique risks faced by public entities more thoroughly than a generalist carrier, which helps to avoid potential fraud while also saving policyholders from paying unwarranted claims.
The Trident claims management and senior staff are also seasoned pros. On average, they have been involved in handling law enforcement liability claims on behalf of public entities for more than 20 years. They bring a wealth of practical experience while understanding the sensitivity needed to deal with claims issues unique to governmental entities.
That includes jails, which pose one of the greatest financial risks facing public entities large and small. Trident explored this in more detail, including offering recommendations on ways to mitigate risks, in its recently published jail claims study.
Trident’s claims staff handles a variety of municipal exposures ranging from small rural villages to large municipalities with self-insured retentions. Trident values its business partners and stays closely connected with its clients on claims issues to ensure a successful relationship.
