Legal Defense Plan

Due to the ever increasing risks of legal exposure for those who are active in the Law Enforcement Profession, the Riverside Sheriffs' Association requires that its members be enrolled in the Association sponsored Legal Defense Plan. Presently, the RSA sponsored plan is administered through the RSA Legal Defense Trust.


24-Hour Emergency Hotline

24 hour Emergency Representation is available for all RSA members. A qualifying emergency is anything, which places a plan participant at potential immediate legal risk, such as an officer involved shooting (OIS), in custody death (ICD), or other similarly serious incident. Representation for other more routine or less serious matters require reasonable advanced notice to secure Representation Services. To contact the Trust please refer to the phone numbers listed below:

24-hour emergency Hotline: (951) 653-0130
Or toll free (800) 877-7317

Office Hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 am-5:00 pm, closed county
