Why Jobs4Blue is the Best Choice for Outsourcing Extra Duty

Posted by VCS Software

In police officer scheduling, the terms extra duty, special duty and off duty refer to times where a police officer is not scheduled to work a regular shift, but they are nonetheless hired to work events paid by third parties. Traditionally, these events were scheduled by personnel in the precincts’ administration departments, but recently, more and more police departments have been making the switch to utilize a new best practice – outsourcing their extra duty management.

Solutions Offered by Jobs4Blue, Managed Services for Extra Duty

Posted by VCS Software

The general public is mostly unaware of the process behind officer dispatch. But any police department knows that there is a considerable amount of work that goes into directing a police officer to the site of an accident, a protest, or any other event that requires crowd, traffic direction, security, as well as interpersonal interactions -- which is why we created Jobs4Blue.

Jobs4Blue is dedicated to making the extra duty scheduling challenges of the past obsolete. Our services take over the administrative side of extra duty operations, allowing contractors to work directly with us rather than the police department. After receiving a request from a contractor, we hire the officers, allowing them to monitor their work, and update the details of their work through the website or app (such as whether they need to leave a job early or set specific hours), all the while promoting transparency through all aspects of the process. Police departments working with Jobs4Blue give their officers better control over all aspects of their extra duty schedules.
