U. S. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine is working to create more networking opportunities for his police officers and support staff and has reached out to WIFLE to assist him in doing this. On Wednesday August 28, 2013, the United States Capitol Police and WIFLE will hold a Flash Mentoring event from 1:00-3:00 pm and 3:30-5:30 pm. The two separate sessions will allow the Capitol Police to hold training for the day and afternoon shifts. Each session will be limited to 10 mentors and 60 protégés. This event is open to both sworn and non-sworn women from all federal law enforcement agencies. You do not have to be a member to attend.
MESSAGE FOR WIFLE MEMBERS:
As you are undoubtedly aware, there has been an incredible amount of attention and scrutiny upon federal agencies and programs. Complaints and allegations of wrongdoing have simply become the cost of doing business for many federal officers. Whether true or false, and whether exacerbated by media sensation, negative public impact or political agendas, if you don't have professional liability coverage in place, the cost to defend your decisions, actions, or inactions could be cost prohibitive - even if you are ultimately vindicated.
FEDS professional liability coverage is available for $280 annually - after you enter discount code "WIFLE". And after you apply for agency reimbursement (all federal law enforcement officers and officer assistants are eligible for reimbursement), the net costs are only $140 plus tax. Payroll deduction is available for all employees.
If you are in a supervisory position, the policy also includes coverage, at no additional cost, for employment practices liability claims such as allegations of harassment, discrimination, retaliation, whistleblower reprisal and wrongful termination.
Most Umbrella policies exclude employment related acts, errors and missions. FEDS is recommended for every WIFLE member. For questions or to request brochures email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To enroll, call 866.955.FEDS or log on to www.fedsprotection.com. Don't wait. 5 minutes now can save you thousands of dollars and give you a whole lot of peace of mind later.
Excelsior College is pleased to announce a PERMANENT tuition discount on master’s degree programs for WIFLE Members at Excelsior. Additionally, the program is available to spouses/domestic partners of WIFLE members.
