According to recent city audits, most problems with extra-duty employment are completely avoidable with a centrally administered program that ensures accountability and transparency.  Don’t get caught in the Off-Duty Blind Spot!

The Off-Duty
BLIND SPOT

  • Customer Pay Delinquency

  • No Workers’ Compensation
  • Working Excessive Hours

Headlines

The number of agencies making the headlines from a lack of accountability, oversight, and transparency in their off-duty programs is steadily increasing. Reference our off-duty headlines archive to see why proper off-duty management is essential to your agency.

Mitigate Risk Before the Blind Spot Makes the Headlines

Recent audits show that most problems with off-duty employment are due to a completely avoidable blind spot: the lack of a centrally administered program that ensures transparency, oversight, and accountability of off-duty assignments.

Many agency leaders who are aware of the off-duty risks, simply don’t have the time, money, or other resources to address and prevent these issues. Some agencies who find themselves in the headlines for off-duty incidents feel they are forced to suspend off-duty jobs entirely. 

Since our company’s founding, Off Duty Management has been on a mission to protect and support our agency partners and provide agencies across the US with the tools they need to identify their off-duty blind spots to stay out of the headlines.
