The North Miami Police Department is not obligated to provide off-duty police services. Off-duty police services will not be approved for any person, firm, or organization whose offices, members, business, or operations are of a questionable nature; or for any event that will discredit the officer, Police Department, or the City.
It is understood that, notwithstanding the fact that the applicant will pay the City for services rendered and administrative fees, the applicant is restricted to the general assignment of duties to be performed and has no authority over the police personnel.
It is further understood that a police officer performing off-duty police services, who takes police action falling within the purview, or on the premises, of the applicant, shall remain in an off-duty service status for the duration of time to complete the processing of such action. Any time, beyond the time that was originally contracted, which is used to complete the processing of the police action, shall be paid for by the applicant. However, an officer taking police action outside the purview of the applicant, or off the applicant's premises, will revert to an on-duty status.
