At tonight’s work session the Salisbury City Council will consider authorizing the police chief to enter into contractual agreements with businesses that request law enforcement services.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that officers with the Police Department have been working extra duty assignments at The Centre at Salisbury for some time.
The resolution says that the police department has developed a policy and standard contract that lays out the rules for all extra duty and secondary employment for its personnel.
It would allow uniformed and non-uniformed personnel to provide security at local businesses with the approval of the police chief.
There are no costs to the police department or the city.
