Officer = $42.00 per hour (traffic and general security)
Supervisor = $50.00 per hour (required when requesting four or more officers)
Vehicle = $10.00 per hour (when requesting patrols)
DPD reviews these rates annually, and any rate changes will take effect on July 1 of the calendar year. Employers may compensate officers at the minimum rate or higher at the employer's discretion. DPD officers cannot negotiate rates with an employer; any rate paid to any officer that exceeds the minimum rate must be approved by the Off-Duty Coordinator.
Officers will be compensated at the agreed upon rate for a minimum of (3) hours, even if the assignment is less than (3) hours.
Cancellations by the employer must be made at least 24 hours before the assignment begins. If the Off-Duty Employment Coordinator receives less than 24-hour notice from the employer and is unable to contact the officer(s) working the assignment, the employer will be required to pay the officers staffed for the assignment for three hours of pay at the minimum rate.
Cancellations made during normal business hours (Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) should be made via email to Jrussell@townofdavidson.org. After business hours or on weekends/holidays, an email should be sent to Jrussell@townofdavidson.org and a follow-up call should be made to the On-Duty Supervisor at 704-892-5131. Press option 2.
It is the responsibility of the employer to notify the Off-Duty Employment Coordinator if the business or organization will be closed for a holiday or for any other purpose when off-duty officers are normally scheduled. If the employer fails to notify the Off-Duty Employment Coordinator that officers are not needed on a particular day, the three-hour minimum charge will apply.
Secondary employment is voluntary and worked on an officer’s time off from the department. Therefore, it can never be guaranteed an off-duty assignment will be filled. An employer should use the Detail Kommander application to make sure the job is filled. When an employer asks to hire a DPD officer, it is understood ANY officer may in fact work the assignment.
Under extraordinary circumstances, off-duty officers may be activated to an on-duty status and pulled away from their off-duty assignments. The priority of DPD officers is their full time employment within the Davidson Police Department and any corresponding obligations, such as callback or court.
If this occurs the officer should ensure that the employer and Off-Duty Coordinator are notified. The employer is only obligated for that amount of time worked, rounded up to the nearest quarter hour.
