ICOPs recognizes the unique legal needs of Illinois Police Officers; from decertification, police commission hearings, and internal reviews. That is why we offer the ICOPs Legal Plan to all Illinois officers, including for those that can’t be part of a union due to rank or law.
Police Officers can be accused, disciplined, suspended, or fired for actions taken during normal police work. You may end up as the accused. That’s when you count on the ICOPs Legal Plan.

ICOPs attorneys are on-call and available 24/7
They are on the spot, from memorandums to merit board hearings.
Some examples of the types of assistance our attorneys have provided in the middle of the night:
- Officer involved shootings

- Advice on writing a memorandum to your supervisor
The ICOPs Legal Plan is open to ALL Illinois Police Officers, including Command Staff
For criminal and civil defense, Legal Plan members can sign up for a supplemental criminal defense plan. For other legal needs, members can enroll in the supplement plan offered to ICOPs Members by MetLife. See the Member Benefits page for more information.
The ICOPs Legal Plan does not cover criminal charges, EEOC or similar complaints, workman’s compensation, or civil lawsuits. If you have an issue outside the legal plan coverage, please call our office and we can assist you finding proper representation. The ICOPs Legal Plan is a separate offering from ICOPs collective bargaining representation. All chapters and members, sworn and non-sworn, are represented by ICOPs attorneys in bargaining and disciplinary matters. ICOPs union members get all the benefits of the Legal Plan as part of their union membership.
