Police Details Information

Updated: Following Rates in Effect on October 4th, 2021

All ranks are paid at the same rate, with the exception of details that require supervisors. A sergeant is required for details with three or more officers assigned. A lieutenant is required for details with six or more officers assigned. The supervisor is then paid at the rates set below.

All details require a 4 hour minimum. For details in excess of 4 hours, but less than 8 hours, an 8 hour minimum shall apply. For details in excess of 8 hours, but less than 10 hours, a 10 hour minimum shall apply. For details in excess of 10 hours, but less than 12 hours, a 12 hour minimum shall apply. All details that are not cancelled at least 2 hours before the start time will be subject to a 4 hour minimum.

*For details not considered "Road Work" which exceed 4 hours, but less than 6 hours, a 6 hour minimum shall apply. If the detail exceeds 6 hours, but less than 8 hours, an 8 hour minimum shall apply. An example of this would be an officer hired for security at an event on private property.

*Note that with this update, details will now be classified as Non-Weekend and Weekend, with different rates of pay for each. Please see the below information about the detail pay rates.

*A 10% hourly surcharge is also required by the Town of Brookline for all details.
