Civil Actions

Representation will be provided to members in any civil suit where the plaintiff has alleged that the member was acting with the course and scope of duty; and where the public entity has denied the member representation but ALADS, through its designated legal affairs coordinator, has determined that the member was acting within the course and scope and course of duty. If the defense is being provided by the public agency, ALADS attorneys will monitor the defense, at the member's option, to ensure that the interests of the member are being protected.

An ALADS Full Service Voting Member may be afforded legal representation, after criminal charges are filed, so long as the charges stem from conduct which is within the course and scope of the member’s duties as a deputy sheriff.
