We will assign off-duty police officers for special events and circumstances in response to requests from citizens or businesses to the extent permitted by existing resources and in accordance with department procedures. The primary intent of extra-duty assignments is to provide a supplementary service to the community by assigning available off-duty uniformed officers to security, crowd control, or traffic related details which do not fall within the scope of the on-duty patrol officer's responsibilities, yet which are reasonably expected to require the services of a sworn police officer.
The business or citizen requesting this service is required to pay for the officers' services at a rate established by the police department. Requests for services which exceed the department's capabilities or are not consistent with the professional law enforcement policies of the department will not be honored. All extra-duty police services provided by Clearwater Police must be within the Clearwater city limits.
Clearwater police officers do not arrange their own "off duty jobs." All job requests are screened and assigned by the Clearwater Police Department.
