The public often asks if they can hire an off-duty police officer to provide extra security at a special event.
The Lakeland Police Department permits officers to work these special events and other off-duty details through a scheduling system maintained within the department.
For more information regarding hourly rates, minimum number of hours, staffing needs based on the scope of the event, and off-duty indemnification agreements, please contact:
