Security services by Lynchburg police officer's may be requested by any business and/or individual for both recurring and single events, so long as the employment does not conflict with LPD Off-Duty Employment Restrictions. Please click here for the list of Employment Restrictions.
LPD Officers are not permitted to work alcohol events unless the event is City sponsored or have a contract with the City through which off-duty officers are required to be employed. All events require at least 14 days notice prior to the event.
The current Off-Duty Officer pay structure is mandatory for all events:

Those applying for an ABC license need to have their request in at least 3 weeks prior to the event.
