    To meet the unique needs of our community, the Miami Beach Police Department offers hourly police-services for private entities. Four separate off-duty options are available:

    • Temporary Off-Duty Details- short term, non-repetitive, which usually occur on short notice. 

    Cancellation of an off-duty detail must be received by the Off-Duty Unit at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the start of the detail.

    • Permanent Off-Duty Details-repetitive, involving the same employer.

     Requests for permanent off-duty services are made by completing a “Permanent   

    Off-Duty Police Service Application” which can be obtained by contacting the Off-Duty Unit.

    • Special Event Off-Duty Details-infrequent, one time, or annual events, which require a City permit, may involve large numbers of people, and the use of City property, streets, and/or parks.

    A Special Event detail requires a permit, which is coordinated with the Cultural Arts and Tourism Department. Please contact this office FIRST by email: www.eventsmiamibeach.com or by calling: 305.673.7577.

    • Still Photography/Film requests for off-duty services

    Still photography/Film employers requesting off-duty services must have a valid permit on-site, issued by the City’s Film and Print Office: www.eventsmiamibeach.com or by calling: 305.673.7577.

    For more information or to request off-duty employment, contact the Off-Duty Unit by email: offduty@miamibeachfl.gov., or telephone: 305.673.7823.
