· $36 per hour for all officers, with a minimum of 3 hours billed per officer. For events that require four or more officers, an event supervisor is required. For these events charges will be:

· $36 per hour for all officers, with a minimum of 3 hours billed per officer

· $40 per hour for event supervisor, with a minimum of 3 hours billed per supervisor (If a supervisor is required)

· $15 per hour for all vehicles

 

If a business or individual that has contracted for a special duty officer wishes to cancel the job, notification must be made to the police department or to the officer directly at least one hour prior to the scheduled start of the job. If neither the police department, nor the officer is called to cancel the job or cancellation has been made less than one hour prior to the scheduled start of the job, the business or individual contracting for the special duty officer will be billed for 3 hours “show-up” time for all officers scheduled to work.
