Uniformed/Plain Clothes Police Officers
UMPD Police Officers are licensed by the State of Minnesota as Peace Officers and they can provide security for an event in which physical intervention may be required, such as a dance, party, or reception where there is a large crowd or an event in which alcohol is being served. Police Officers are also available to provide traffic control for events such as fun runs, bicycle rally's and other events that draw additional vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic.
Police officer and supervisor services cost a flat rate of $82.00/hour from 6/18/2012 through 6/16/2013 with a three hour minimum. FY14 flat rate will be $83.00/hour from 6/17/2013 through 6/15/2014 For example, if you request two officers to work for three hours, you will be charged for six hours of police services. If your event requires more than three police officers, a supervisor will be assigned to the event as well and the rate will remain the same. Be prepared to provide a Fund/Dept ID/Program number or billing address along with the departmental accountant contact information upon request of the service. Rates subject to change if event is scheduled in the next fiscal year.
