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: 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: or by calling: 305.673.7577.
