Such settlements need to be paid by wage garnishment. I have a feeling that would learn people real fast. It's easy to be blase about such things until it's your money on the line.
[rant]I propose every employed officer must maintain his or her own professional liability insurance. The employing agency can pay its officers premiums as part of negotiated officer compensation. If an officer arrests someone for carrying in a liquor store the falsely arrested would seek damages against the officer's insurance policy, not the agency or government body. Officers who have multiple large payouts may become difficult to insure and the rates prohibitively high.[/rant] Clearly some details left to iron out but it could help solve a lot of problems.
