Why 5 Star?
5 Star Security protects both our clients and our officers by providing liability insurance far beyond the minimum requirements of the State of Alabama.
For clients, this means that you are covered and indemnified against personal and corporate tort liability resulting from any security incidents.
For officers, this means you don’t have to purchase your own “moonlighting insurance” through the FOP, and our $2,000,000 coverage applies to all of your duties while you’re working for 5 Star.
Section 6-5-338, Code of Alabama (full text below) concerns the legal liabilities and minimum insurance coverage necessary for the employment of off-duty police officers. Subsection (b) states that “No immunity is extended hereby to any private non-governmental person or entity, including any private employer of a peace officer during that officer's off-duty hours.” Subsection (c) sets the minimum liability coverage at $100,000, while “failure to have in force the insurance herein required shall make every individual employer, every general partner of a partnership employer, every member of an unincorporated association employer, and every officer of a corporate employer individually liable for all acts taken by an “off-duty” peace officer within the line and scope of the private employment.”
