The primary concerns of the Goodyear Police Department regarding officers working Off-Duty are protecting the employee from hazards that may result directly or indirectly by the employment, conflicts of interest that may arise from the employment, liability and risk management concerns, and providing a professional service to the community.
In response to these concerns, the Goodyear Police Department prohibits officers from working Off-Duty in the following situations:
- Outside the Goodyear City limits;
- Where the employer restricts the employee from performing his/her duty as a Goodyear Police Officer, or where a uniformed officer is required to perform non-police related work;
- Where the work involves a labor dispute of the outside employer and a former employee;
- For private investigative work for which a state license would normally be required;
- At locations where the employer will not hire an adequate number of officers or establish adequate security measures to safely handle the assignment;
- When risks or insurance matters have not been adequately addressed.
The Goodyear Police Department reserves the right to change the rate of pay and terms of this Work Agreement provided that at least 60 days written notice is given to the company at the billing address indicated herein. Upon notice of such change, the company reserves the right to cancel this Work Agreement if the company does not agree to the change in rate of pay or terms.
The person responsible for payment herein, and the company or organization receiving the services identified above, shall indemnify, defend, release and hold harmless the City of Goodyear, the Goodyear Police Department, and their officers, agents, employees and officials from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including attorney fees, arising out of performance of services under this agreement.
