The Jackson Police Department has established a policy of allowing police officers to work in uniform for approved business/vendor establishments requesting security. The procedure allows officers to work extra duty employment with business establishments and other approved vendors at a rate of $25.00 per hour. Business/Vendors are asked to provide a letter of request for employment. Complete and return (within seventy-two hours) the extra duty employment forms provided by JPD stating date(s), time(s), officer(s) requested and nature scope of services the officer will be performing, etc. The Chief of Police or Designee must approve all requests prior to officer(s) engaging in extra duty employment. Request must be submitted seventy-two (72) hours prior to event.
Additionally, Businesses/Vendors requesting officers must supply (before approval) the City with a Certificate of Insurance naming the “City of Jackson” as Additionally Insured for ($1,000,000) one million dollars and a deposit of $250.00 before officers can be approved to work assignments.
