Special Conservators of the Peace (SCOP) --

House Bill 1524 has been introduced in this year's Virginia Legislative Session to update the insurance requirement language in VA Code Section 19.2-13, Whereas, last year this was changed to include "professional law enforcement liability insurance". This change puts back in "comprehensive general liability insurance" and keeps the same insurance limits ($500,000) language.

As you all are well aware, the previous change that was made, was preventing anyone except law enforcement from obtaining this type of insurance. By making this change, will now allow private industry to retain and maintain SCOP insurance with the increased liability limits (that were passed last year).

Now to the point of this Petition! In order to get this through the General Assembly this year, we need a VOICE! One can only assume, as in previous years, DCJS and the VA Association of Chiefs of Police will oppose any changes. Therefore in effort to show the General Assembly that our Industry DOES care and WANTS this change - We need YOUR support to make this happen. Your voice and feedback are what is needed to show our support for this change. Please sign this Petition to share your support for HB 1524!
