Being without legal defense coverage is like having a classic car or a home with no insurance. You would not own either without insurance and you should never go on duty or work an extra job without the FOP legal plan coverage. Everyday you are on duty their is a chance of anything happening which could result in disciplanary action, civil lawsuit, or being charged for an offense.
