- Rising crime Downtown could mean more off-duty police officers moonlighting in uniform.
Some off-duty police officers would be allowed to wear their CPD uniforms while working private security through a new ordinance introduced last week by Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd).
While many Chicago police officers work security and other second jobs, allowing them to do so in uniform would help prevent future violence as crime rises across the city, Hopkins said.
So....insurance? Liability? Indemnification? IOD? Lots of questions. Not to mention the pay scale and burnout rate.
