The Bangor Police Department's (Maine) policy on outside employment epitomizes most administrators' approach to the issue. Its policy states that "Supplementary employment is not encouraged, but may be permitted with the approval of the Chief of Police." Forty-three percent of the respondents reported the following attitude toward officers' part-time jobs: "We don't care as long as the assignments don't interfere with members' job performance." Only 33 percent of the departments reported that they encourage off-duty assignments. In any case, police administrators pay close attention to the types of off-duty jobs performed by officers, with attention to the types of employers and how often the officers work. One concern about off-duty employment is the effect it might have on the department's image, as well as the officers' physical and mental conditions due to the additional workload. Another concern is liability; officers injured in the performance of off-duty jobs can leave their departments short-handed or cost them money. Only 48 percent of the respondents indicated that their departments' group health insurance policies cover injuries or illnesses incurred by officers while engaged in off-duty assignments. There is some concern among administrators that officers can abuse their police powers while performing off-duty jobs or that their uniforms, especially when they are armed, can upset civilians. This article provides examples of off-duty employment policies adopted by a number of departments across the country.
