The Delaware Valley Trusts are risk sharing pools with over 160 public entity members in Pennsylvania and Delaware.

What Makes Us Different

The Delaware Valley Trusts Advantage: Managed Risk. Collective Rewards.

When it comes to selecting health, workers’ compensation, or property and liability insurance, public entities need stability and superior coverage at the lowest responsible cost. At the Delaware Valley Trusts we understand. Our members enjoy stable rates that defy insurance industry trends while taking advantage of comprehensive benefits, cash dividends, rate credits, multi-trust discounts, superior member service, and a wide array of exclusive value-added services.

Let us manage your risk while you realize the rewards.

Testimonials

As a Borough Manager, I am constantly blown away by the response I receive as a member of the Delaware Valley Trusts. The Trust’s value-added programs such as training, legal guidance and loss control resources are more than just benefits – they set the DVT apart from any other liability coverage provider!

The goals of the Trusts are the most closely aligned with the goals of our elected officials in providing quality health care to our employees than the other trusts and commercial providers. In addition, the service provided by the Trust is outstanding.

Dealing with Mentally Ill Subjects – VIRTUAL

Open to DVWCT and DVPLT members at no cost.

The dangers, and potential for the use of deadly and non-deadly force, are manifest in dealing with mentally ill subjects.  Police remain the first responders to citizens in crisis and are often unprepared for the demands of the law, resulting in sometimes catastrophic outcomes.  This class will cover the current state of the law, and move quickly into actual cases both where officers were found liable, and where their efforts produced a better outcome.  The class will focus both on avoiding those “catastrophic outcomes” and protecting the officer and municipality from litigation.

Presented by Chris Boyle, Esq., Law Enforcement Consultant
