Webinar - Trends in Off Duty Work: Challenges & Considerations

Wednesday Sep 04, 2019 - 01:00pm to 02:00pm EDT
Event Description: 

This webinar will address the massive but seldom discussed market consisting of off-duty law enforcement officers providing security services for various clients. Although this type of work has been occurring since the beginning of modern law enforcement, recent factors are influencing this type of work more than ever and may reveal threats to the law enforcement agencies, the officers performing the work, and the market itself. The webinar will examine the specific trends shared by law enforcement executives and their officers, and their effect on the agency, officer, and the client will be explored. These trends include officer fatigue, coordinator-managed jobs, public criticism, ensuring department policy is adhered to, officers as bill collectors, and more.

During this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The myriad factors currently affecting extra-duty employment;
  • The policies to address adverse effects of extra-duty work on officers, agencies, and police-public relations;
  • The modern solutions to address the problematic trends, including program outsourcing and software platform solutions; and
  • The evaluation of their agency’s off-duty employment program and policies, in light of recent trends.
