Law Enforcement Pool
The Law Enforcement Pool began operations as a liability program August 1, 1995 with 19 original member counties. This Pool provides coverage for law enforcement activities, which includes sheriff departments and detention centers.
Law Enforcement and Detention Advisory Committee (LEDAC)
The Multi-Line Pool Board created the Law Enforcement and Detention Advisory Committee (LEDAC) to advise on law enforcement and detention center issues. The members of this committee consist of sheriffs and detention administrators and are appointed and approved by the Multi-Line Pool Board. They focus on substantial issues facing county law enforcement offices and detention centers. Click here to view or download a copy of the committee roster.
Annual Pool Membership Meetings
Each county member has one voting representative in the Multi-Line Pool, which meets annually in January at the NMAC Legislative Conference. The members elect the Board of Directors and discuss Multi-Line and Law Enforcement Pool business.
The staff in the Multi-Line Department administers property, general liability, civil rights, law enforcement and other claims on behalf of member counties. The Multi-Line claims examiners are very experienced and work exclusively on county risk and claims matters. The staff is extremely knowledgeable on how counties operate and the laws that apply to county government, especially in reference to the Tort Claims Act and federal civil rights laws. As some claims develop into litigation, the department retains outside defense counsel who are very experienced and have a high degree of expertise working on all types of cases, ranging from employment and civil rights matters, to automobile accidents. The department takes pride in working closely with member counties and defense counsel in providing professional customer service towards reaching reasonable claims resolutions.
