The MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT is NOT obligated to provide Off-Regular-Duty Police Service. A permit will not be issued to any person, firm, or organization whose officers, members, business, or operations are questionable or for any event that will discredit the employee or Department.
It is understood that, notwithstanding the fact that the permit holder will reimburse Miami-Dade County for the services rendered, the police personnel remain employees of the Miami-Dade Police Department. The applicant is restricted to the general assignment of duties to be performed and has no authority over the police personnel.
It is further understood by all parties that a police officer performing off-regular-duty service who takes police action falling within the purview, or on the permit holder's premises, shall remain in an off-regular-duty service status for the duration of time it takes to complete the processing of such action. Any time beyond that originally contracted for which is used to complete the processing of the police action shall be paid for by the permit holder. However, an officer taking police action outside the purview of the permit, or off the permit holder's premises, will revert to an on-duty status.
All compensation due for permanent or temporary permits will be paid in cash, check, money order or credit card. All checks and money orders must be payable to the Board of County Commissioners and forwarded to the Miami-Dade Police Department, Fiscal Administration Bureau - Off-Duty Police Unit, 9105 NW 25 Street, Suite 3049, Doral, FL. 33172.
Payment for a permanent account is due upon receipt of an Off-Duty Police invoice. Compensation for temporary permits must be paid in advance upon the request of service. Accounts more than thirty (30) days in arrears may be subject to finance charges at the maximum legal rate. Pursuant to Administrative Order IO 3-9 Accounts Receivable Adjustments, Miami-Dade County will offset amounts due to a vendor/supplier/grantee if money is owed to the County.
