Off Duty Contracts
We're available 24 hours a day!
The Wilmington Police Department, under the direction of Chief Ralph Evangelous, recognizes the growing security needs of the public and private sector. As a result, a program was developed offering services provided by police officers while they are off-duty. The program is supported by hourly fees paid by clients for services provided.
Current and former clients include but are not limited to:
- Credit Unions
- Grocery Stores
- Movie and Television Production Companies
- Jewelry Stores
- Private Individuals
- Five and 10K Races
- Movie Theaters
- Department Stores
- Construction Projects
- Funeral Escorts
Contract rates for officers:
- Hourly Rate per officer- $36 per hour (there is a four-hour minimum on all contracts)
- Marked Police Cruisers- $25 per vehicle (if the vehicle is used for four hours or less)
- $50 per vehicle (if the vehicle is used for more than four hours)
*A police cruiser cannot be requested without an officer.
Police Officers will be in full uniform and are available 24-hours a day. This service is provided within the Wilmington city limits only. Forty-eight hours advance notice is requested to ensure adequate staffing of the contract.
If you would like to request the services of an officer/s please complete the new client information sheet and fax it to 910.341.4634. Once everything is agreed you will receive a contract from us to review and sign.
