    Off-Duty Officer Requests

    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.

    Please review these Off Duty Officer Employment Restrictions.

    • $40.00 per hour per officer & $42.00 per hour per Supervisor (Events requiring 4 or more officers)
    • $55.00 / $57.00 per hour per officer – Less than 7 days notice
