How to Hire Off-Duty Police Officers


Welcome to the Tucson Police Department Special Duty Office homepage.  City of Tucson off-duty police officers may be hired by the public to provide services such as security, traffic control for events and roadway projects, and other services as described in City of Tucson Code Section 2-130. 

Changes to Property Damage Only Collisions

Due to the reduction in force of approximately 156 officers over the past two years the Tucson Police Department has undertaken, and now completed, a comprehensive review and analysis of the types of calls that currently require a police officer’s response. This was done to insure that the Department maintain the capacity to respond to critical emergency calls that require an immediate and timely law enforcement response.
