  • The majority of car insurance companies do not offer a special discount for law enforcement officers
  • Additionally, car insurance companies that insure fleets of law enforcement vehicles tend to offer a specialized discount to the municipality that owns the cars
  • However, there is a business in England which provides insurance primarily for police officers called Police Mutual

The History of Police Mutual

For more than 90 years, Police Mutual has been offering special insurance and banking services to police officers.

The Police Mutual Assurance Association, the first fraternal police organization that is ultimately responsible for Police Mutual, was founded in 1866. In 1922, the Police Mutual Assurance Association became the Police Mutual Assurance Society, and the Police Mutual company was started.

Within 40 years, Police Mutual amassed more than ten million British pounds in assets.

In 1997, civilian police became eligible to take advantage of Police Mutual services. Police Mutual began offering investment products in 1998, home insurance in 2002, car insurance in 2004, and specialized investment funds in 2005.

In 2003, Police Mutual extended services and benefits to the extended family of police officers.

A good financial education is critical when it comes to long-term financial success. It is not enough to have money if you do not know how to use it properly and to your advantage.

Money coaching is a free service that Police Mutual offers to its members; it is an extension of financial education.

Police Mutual makes it a point to support police-related charities whenever possible and chooses one cause to sponsor every year. Police Mutual realizes that, by supporting the causes, it is in the long run supporting its members.

Police Mutual also likes to contribute to events that celebrate the hard work and sacrifice that police officers make every day.
