About Us

The Office of Police Secondary Employment

In May 2012, Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced a major step forward by creating the Office of Police Secondary Employment (OPSE). The new, independent organization manages secondary employment for police officers. The new system centralizes oversight and shifts the responsibility for all aspects of police secondary employment from the individual officer to the OPSE. This means all initial contracting of work, joint planning to meet customer needs, scheduling of officers and supervisors, payment and accounting for work, and customer feedback will be executed and managed by the OPSE. Freeing officers of this administrative burden allows the police department to focus on preventing, fighting, and investigating crime in our city while maintaining an important supplementary service for businesses and civic organizations and preserving additional earning potential for our officers.
