While hiring off-duty police officers can be a big help to you, the logistics of it are often somewhat complicated. If it's your first time, you may face new paperwork, and if you want to hire more than one officer, the process may take some time, not to mention being a lot to manage at once.
This is why it's best to have someone working in the middle for you, managing the hiring process and relieving you of some of the hard work as a result. Having this extra help can make your experience with hired officers go smoother and also be a good incentive to work with them again and again, assuming you like the results.
Before you decide to hire, think of these benefits you get from the service of an expert company with the connections and skills that you need.
1. Insurance coverage
One of the biggest concerns about working with police is the liability for harm. While they are working for you, off-duty police officers may find themselves in harm's way due to some accident, and you might be technically liable. Just imagine the kind of facility-related dangers visitors might encounter from tight spaces at a petrochemical plant or a crowded office, and you may start to get the idea.
The "middleman" helps you avoid this when there's insurance already included to cover the officers and reduce your immediate liability once the case begins. Even if the worst case scenario takes place, there's a plan to help mitigate the costs and liability.
2. More communication
With someone working between you and the officers you want to hire, you can communicate with someone highly experienced who then provides advice and gives you insight. This is ideal whether or not you've ever worked with police before, and it can also be a good way to learn more about the individual personnel you're hiring.
This layer of contact also gives you a chance to explain any site-specific requirements and requests you might have about the job before the contract begins. There's less of the pressure that might come with talking to an officer directly. Instead, you get the comfort of clear communication with the person overseeing the transaction with the officers.
It's probably the single most obvious reason to work with professionals: the simplicity of having a single point of contact. No matter what you need the officers for, there's bound to be work to do to make everything official, before, during and after the job itself. That includes not just paperwork but the payment process and other possible hurdles.
Aside from the reduced liability and administrative burden, working with an off-duty police officer management business like Frizell Group makes hiring officers faster and easier, with a simple way to contact the managers in charge. You'll get the benefits of these officers with less of the hassle and some assurance that you wouldn't otherwise have.
