Raleigh Police Issue New Off-Duty Work Rules

Posted September 6, 2006 4:49 a.m. EDT

— As the Raleigh Police Department continues to investigate whether officers worked private security jobs while still on duty, Police Chief Jane Perlov issued new guidelines for off-duty work.

Officers must submit a detailed report of their off-duty work every two weeks, and all assignments must come through the department.

Also, officers can no longer accept cash payments. All payments must be made through checks drawn on the account of the business contracting for security services.

The guidelines also address off-duty work attire and limit officers to a total of 16 hours of on- and off-duty work in any 24-hour period.

The police department plans broader changes once the internal investigation is complete, officials said.
