Protecting a Security Team with Insurance

If you’ve taken the step to protect your church with trained volunteers, Security Operations Liability Coverage provides important protections for your team.

This coverage pays for:

  • Additional medical expense, broadened wage loss reimbursement, counseling, and security-related equipment damage for team members.*
