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

Request a Paid Duty

During Business Hours (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. excluding statutory holidays).  

Follow these instructions to book a paid duty officer during business hours:

1.      LOGIN or Create a new account

2.      Select the duties requested (Banquet; Traffic/Construction - Please ensure to attach the Traffic Control/Protection Plan)

3.      Specify the hours and dates requested including instructions or specific information related to the request (attach any relevant permits, provide as much detail as possible about the event).

4.      Submit the request.

Within 2 business days, the Paid Duty Unit will review all paid duty requests including acceptance of the request, number of officers and vehicles, depending on the nature of the paid duty.  Payment is required, in full, prior to the requested paid duty date.

**Due to traffic flow and volume of vehicles at certain locations the Paid Duty Unit may increase the number of officers on the request with consultation with the District.  (e.g. work being completed on/along Highway 7 and larger intersections)**

Outside Business Hours

To request a paid duty for the next business day outside of business hours, fax the Paid Duty Request Form or the Funeral Paid Duty Request Form to the policing district in which the paid duty will be performed.  It is advised to follow up with the District to ensure that the request was received and had been filled with an officer assigned.

Funeral Escorts

Please attempt to route funeral processions in such a way as to avoid intersections equipped with red light cameras. If an officer is not visible within a red light camera-generated image, all vehicles proceeding through an intersection against a red light will be considered to have committed an offence and an offence notice will be issued to the vehicle owner.

Cancellation Terms

Any cancellation request must be received more than 24 hours before the beginning of the requested paid duty shift, or the applicant will be responsible for three hours at regular rates for each officer originally requested, or four hours if cancellation occurs within one hour of the requested shift.
