Thank you for your interest in the Off-Duty Program. To hire Off-Duty deputies, please email or call 916-874-5096. You will be asked to complete an Employer Application questionnaire. All information requested on the Employer Application must be completed. The information you provide will be used to draw up a contract for service. Our contract includes an indemnification agreement. Pursuant to state law effective January 1, 1998, the Indemnification Agreement must be signed and returned before an off-duty officer can work.

Your signature on the Employer Application/Contract acknowledges receipt of the Off-Duty policies as well as confirms the date, day, and time the deputy(s) should be scheduled. Also attached is a statement of the fees charged. The basic cost per hour per officer, as well as any additional charges for equipment, if requested or required, will be added as outlined on the cost sheet.

The signed forms and fees must be received in the Off-Duty office at least ten business days prior to your event. Larger jobs, those requiring five or more officers, require more than ten days for scheduling. Contact the Off-Duty Coordinator for additional details.

Officers will not be scheduled until the signed contract and fees are received. The total amount due can be found in the Employer Application/Contract. Please make your check or money order payable to the “Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department”. We cannot accept cash or credit card payments.

Mail your check and the completed forms back to the Sheriff’s Department at the address listed below. You may also drop them off during regular business hours, 8:00AM-4:00PM Monday-Friday, excluding County holidays.

Please call the Off-Duty Work Coordinator at 874-5096 if you have any questions.
