Mutual Law Enforcement Agreements

Mutual Law Enforcement Agreements

Definition

A formal agreement between neighboring municipalities to provide law enforcement assistance in emergency situations when a local police department requires additional personnel. Frequently such agreements contain hold harmless provisions. Although law enforcement liability policies normally exclude contractual assumptions of liability, the policies typically contain exceptions to such exclusions so that liability assumed under mutual law enforcement agreements is usually covered.
