Private Duty Hiring Procedures
To hire an officer for a private security or traffic control detail, please:
- Complete the required Private Duty Request form, found HERE
- Click "OPEN" to open the file
- After filling in all applicable fields, click the "SEND FORM AS EMAIL" button at the bottom of the form
- A window should pop up prompting you to send an email through your preferred email provider
- Click "SEND" to send the Private Duty Request form to NLPD Records
Apart from extenuating circumstances, all requests for private duty police officers are to be made as soon as possible prior to the date of the event. Last minute requests or requests made on the day of the job are not likely to be filled.
The rate for hiring an officer with a marked police car is greater than hiring an officer without a vehicle. Most traffic control jobs require the use of a police vehicle with emergency warning lights.
First time vendors or vendors with prior payment issues may be required to pay in advance.
In the event that there is an emergency situation after hours and an officer is required immediately, call the Shift Commander at (860) 447-5281 (Fax (860) 447-5279)
For questions regarding traffic laws, road closures, restrictions, etc. please contact the Traffic Officer at (860) 447- 5280.
