Detroit Police Moonlighting Goes To Final Vote

detroit police logo1 Detroit Police Moonlighting Goes To Final VoteThe last barrier to Detroit Police being allowed to hold part-time jobs is scheduled for discussion and a final vote next week.

City attorneys have been working on the contract details ever since Detroit City Council approved secondary employment for Detroit Police officers last May.

City Council President Pro tem Gary Brown, who authored the original ordinance, is hoping the contract language between perspective employers and the police department will be approved by the Council next Tuesday.

“We want them on there before Christmas time, before the Christmas season approaches. That’s why we’re trying to get the contracts done before our recess at the end of the month,” Brown said.

If the contract is approved, private businesses and communities will be able to hire police officers in full uniform and squad cars for security work.
