Protection for constables in Pennsylvania.
Constable liability insurance built to safeguard your business.
According to the laws in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, every elected and appointed constable and deputy constable must file proof of professional liability insurance in their county’s Clerk of Courts office before they are able to perform their constable duties.
What is constable liability insurance?
The state mandates minimum coverage of $250,000 per incident and a yearly aggregate of $500,000. E. R. Munro and Company can provide the required limits through the Capitol Indemnity Insurance Company who has a financial rating of “A” by A.M. Best.
A constable who fails to maintain the proper insurance coverage is prohibited from performing judicial duties. You will not be paid by the Clerk of Courts in your county without proof of constable liability insurance coverage. As a customer of E. R. Munro and Company, we will provide your county’s Clerk of Courts with proof of insurance.
Our general liability and business auto policies cover prisoner transport at no additional cost, subject to normal policy terms, conditions, and exclusions.
If your vehicle is protected by a personal automobile policy, there is a very strong chance that prisoner transport is not covered. This can leave a serious gap in your insurance protection. Ask your current personal insurance agent to find out if your policy covers prisoner transport.
If your current personal insurance agent confirms that you do not have coverage for prisoner transport, ask E. R. Munro and Company for a proposal to insure the vehicle you use as a constable with the addition of a business auto policy.
Are you still in need of your constable bond?
A constable is required to faithfully perform the duties of their office as well as account for and pay over all public monies collected in the performance of their duties. Head over to our constable bonds page to view our rates and terms offered in your state.
