Extra Duty Program

General Information

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Extra Duty Program was formed to provide additional law enforcement services requested by private businesses, public agencies and individuals for events located in unincorporated El Paso County.  The private business, public agency or individual requesting extra duty is required to pay for the deputies' services at the rate(s) established by the Undersheriff in the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Extra Duty Agreement. The extra duty deputies’ primary responsibilities are to protect life and property, to keep the peace, and to enforce local, state and federal laws.

If you are a private business, public agency or individual within unincorporated El Paso County who desires to hire extra duty police deputies for an event, please follow these instructions:

  1. Download and review the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Extra Duty Agreement which contains important information regarding procedures, rates, and payments; and
  2. Complete the required information on pages 1, 4, and 5 and email the entire document (all 5 pages) to [email protected].

 

All extra duty job requests are screened by the Extra Duty Coordinator to determine if the request is appropriate and consistent with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Policies and Procedures.  Once a determination has been made, the private business, public agency or individual will be contacted by email.
