The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu

Office of Police Secondary Employment

The Office of Police Secondary Employment (OPSE) is now coordinating all police secondary employment (i.e. “police details”) that are paid on an hourly basis.  This includes general security, neighborhood patrols, school traffic management, special events, private events, street closures, etc. The only types of police details not yet managed through OPSE are escorts (funeral, wedding), parades, second lines, K9 sweeps, and horse-mounted officer patrols. These types of details will be administered through OPSE in the future. If you would like to arrange one of these types of details, please contact the NOPD Special Events Section at the City’s One Stop Shop.

In August 2013, the New Orleans City Council passed two ordinances that were the first steps toward enabling the OPSE to begin accepting payments for police secondary work. Then in late July, 2014, the US District Court – Eastern District of Louisiana issued a court order that established a flexible pricing schedule for police details (see the ordinances and court order on the right of this page under “Latest Information.”).  The current fee structure is as follows:

A Holiday Premium of $17 per officer per hour will be added to the standard customer rates on designated holidays and other times of high officer demand when officer availability is limited. This premium applies to all officers, regardless of rank, and does not incur any additional administrative fee. The full amount will be passed on to officers as a $17 per hour increase in pay on those days.

Also, beginning 31 August, 2014 until a date to be determined, those customers who schedule 100 or more officer hours per two-week officer pay period will be eligible for a rebate equal to 30% of the administrative fee. The effective rates for these largest customers will be:

SuperUser Price Schedule for Customers Scheduling 100 or More Hours per Pay Period (does not affect officer pay)
Tier PO Sgt Lt Capt/Maj/Cmdr
1 $32.38 $35.46 $38.50 $42.50
2 $37.50 $41.00 $44.50 $49.50
3 $49.83 $52.60 $55.50 $59.50
4 $71.50 $71.50 $71.50 $71.50
