Police Departments

Serving Those Who Serve Us

Police officers choose a career path rooted in public service, often protecting communities at the expense of their safety and health. What's holding many officers back from giving their all? Money troubles that cut deep into their confidence and performance.

At Employee Retention Benefits (ERB), our mission is to lift these monetary burdens from police departments nationwide through customized benefits solutions. When benefits align with officers' needs, they're freed up to prioritize what matters most: the safety and well-being of the people they serve.

Why Custom Benefits Matter for Police Departments

Police departments deal with recruitment and retention issues stemming largely from insufficient benefits. What drives qualified candidates away is the constant exposure to high-stress, high-risk situations that come with this line of work. Most of those who join the force leave within five years.

Departments often rely on officers to secure their own benefits, like life insurance, rather than provide comprehensive packages. Benefits directly supporting law enforcement could significantly shift the dial. One survey showed nearly 60% of officers said better health and retirement benefits would strongly influence their decision to stay on the job longer.

For police leadership, customizing benefits allows them to maximize their budgets rather than opting for ill-fitting, expensive plans. When officers feel valued, they're more likely to be satisfied, productive, and committed to their careers for the long haul.
