Public Entity Insurance Program

At NSA, the goal is to achieve real and positive changes in the way insurance products and services are developed and delivered in support of the nation’s criminal justice community.   We know the importance of the office of sheriff.   With this authority comes great responsibility.   In this increasingly violent and litigious world, sheriffs must be ever mindful of the need for legal protection for every member of their agency.   Your Association is here to help you get the protection that you need and deserve.
