The City’s Police Department frequently routinely receives requests from local businesses and other private entities to provide hourly police services or off-duty detail. The off-duty detail services provide a stream of revenue funds for the City and an extra source of income for the assigned police officers. The Department offers four (4) off-duty detail options, which include:
1. Temporary Off-Duty Details for short-term and non-repetitive events, which usually occur on short notice.
2. Permanent Off-Duty Details for repetitive events involving the same entity.
3. Special Event Off-Duty Details for infrequent, one-time, or annual events, which require a City permit and may involve a large number of people and the use of City property, streets, and parks.
4. Still Photography/Film requests.
The Department is using an antiquated legacy system, Paradox, to manage off-duty requests and is seeking a new solution to the management of off-duty assignments.
