Teamsters Legal Defense Fund
Legal trouble is something everyone hopes to avoid during their career. But work in law enforcement long enough and you’ll learn the importance of knowing that you’re protected during the best—and worst—of times. Just ask a member of the Teamsters Law Enforcement League. During a time of crisis, our members have learned the value of the Teamsters Legal Defense Fund, a nationwide program providing excellent legal assistance for civil and criminal incidents. Regardless of your situation, the professionals at the Teamsters Legal Defense Fund will always be at your side, providing strong, unbiased legal representation. Unlike your agency or department, Teamsters Legal Defense Fund only represents your interests as a Teamster law enforcement member. Plus, it’s surprisingly affordable.
The Teamsters Union has given law enforcement professionals an unwavering voice for decades. Through the leadership of the Teamsters Law Enforcement League (TLEL)—which is comprised of veteran law enforcement officers who have personally experienced the challenges of protecting our communities—the union provides excellent representation when members need it most. From police to public safety and corrections officers, the Teamsters Union represents more than 1,400 law enforcement agencies nationwide.
