A paid duty officer is an off-duty police officer performing policing duties for an individual or organization other than York Regional Police. Paid duty officers are assigned by the police service, and may be arranged to serve a variety of functions such as traffic direction or security, at a variety of different functions, including weddings, banquets and other special events


Please note, a four hour minimum charge applies for all officers and vehicles required for a paid duty. Shifts exceeding seven hours in length may be divided into shifts at the discretion of York Regional Police.

A 20 per cent Administration Fee will be charged, in addition to HST. When more than three officers are required, a Sergeant will be assigned.
