CCW Coverage Offered Through RPOAC

As retired peace officers many of us are authorized to carry a concealed weapon. But, have you given any thought to what your liabilities could be if you were to have to use that weapon in a self-defense incident? The legal costs alone could devastate your retirement nest egg not to mention the physical and emotional stress it would inflect on you and your family.

RPOAC is excited to announce a new benefit being offered to our members: CCW Safe

CCW Safe was founded by former police officers and attorneys who have all worked on local, and federal levels of law enforcement. CCW Safe is a legal service membership plan that was designed for CCW permit/license holders and retired law enforcement officers. CCW Safe was founded to offer similar coverages to what we received while serving our communities as active police officers.

Learn more about Carrying a Concealed Weapon coverage benefits.



F.O.P. (The Fraternal Order of Police) is the world's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 330,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges. They are the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities. They are committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those they serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation. No one knows the dangers and the difficulties faced by today's police officers better than another officer, and no one knows police officers better than the FOP.

RPOAC members must be members of FOP to be eligible for the benefits offered. Membership in FOP can be obtained through our online dues payment page by clicking on the "FOP Dues" button or by contacting our Executive Director, Dennis Wright at (800) 743-7622.
