If cops want to personally defend themselves, they’re free to waive qualified immunity. I don’t see that happening voluntarily ever.

And why would they have any direction in the defense if they don’t have any liability?

No I’m not. It’s the City’s liability, the City’s funds, and the City’s decision to settle. If the cops aren’t a party, they have no authority or responsibility in the matter.
