Hiring a Paid Duty
A Paid Duty is a work assignment arranged through the York Regional Police, where an off-duty officer performs policing duties for an individual or organization other than the York Regional Police and is paid by the third party. (Example: Traffic, Security, Weddings, Special Events)
Requests for Paid Duty officers must be received in writing using the prescribed form stating the nature of the duties to be performed, the number of hours involved, the specific hours for which the service is requested and the reasons why it is considered necessary to engage officers for such duties. Vehicles may be required depending on the nature of the Paid Duty.
Fees for this service are outlined on the Paid Duty Request Form.
Please note that a four (4) hour minimum applies for all officers and vehicles. Officers are TO BE PAID DIRECTLY at the completion of the Paid Duty. Cancellation of the Paid Duty must be made within 24 hours of commencement of the shift, or the Applicant will be responsible for three hours at regular rates to each officer booked or four hours if officer(s) attends the Paid Duty.
