    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.

    The current Off-Duty Officer pay structure is mandatory for all events:

    NOTE: There is a 3 hour minimum per officer per request. Cancelation of request less than 48 hours from start time will result in a 3 hour minimum pay for all assigned officers.
