The Roanoke Police Department offers a variety of options for businesses and community organizations seeking to hire off-duty officers. Off-duty officers are available for hire for those who want to enhance public safety at various community events, provide extra security at businesses when terminating employees, etc.
Filling out the form below does not guarantee coverage of your event. Officers voluntarily sign up for off-duty assignments. The police department is not obligated to furnish officers if they do not sign up to work events.
A police officer engaged in off-duty employment is subject to call out in case of emergency, and is expected to leave the off-duty or extra employment in such situations.
When a police officer is engaged in off-duty employment and a situation arises that requires police action, the officer is expected to take the same action they would if they were in an on-duty status.
The police department reserves the right to set a minimum number of officers working at any one event.
Call 540-853-1079 for further assistance if needed. Please complete application below and send it to us 48 hours in advance of scheduled event.
