This goes on all the time. My friend, a Lieutenant get about $120 an hour for these gigs.

They usually run 10+ hours a day.

Everybody say it with me now - PAID.

So if they are active does that mean the city is paying them or are they moonlighting?
If they are moonlighting by being escorts but still have their uniform on wouldn't that be a conflict of interest? S C A M ! !

I doubt they'd have their uniform on...

Many officers moonlight as private security. Some get permission first, some don't. Remember the officer that was killed outside a club while off-duty moonlighting?

Actually I recall that Chief Bully-Cummings approved the initiative to allow officers to use their DPD issued equipment while moonlighting... This also includes uniforms.

California has the same policy statewide... Officers are allowed to moonlight in uniform if they so choose...

No uniform in the case I'm speaking of. He does the Secret Service look.

John Bennett's website reports that the Chief herself needed 8 (eight!) bodyguards on the night of the Auto Show Charity Ball. So, the cop that posted this Craig'slist ad might not be too far out.

Well, when the mayor himself won't venture out in public without an army of bodyguards to protect him, it sends the wrong message about safety in Detroit. City leaders should lead by example and the police should be on the streets protecting the taxpayers, not keeping the city leadership safe from reporters and their pesky questions and cameras.

Didn't they do the same thing in the movie "The Usual Suspects". I wonder if Kaiser Sose is behind this?

Warriorfan, Kwame's posse/clique is more for looks than anything else. It's suppossed to express power. It's also looks very immature in a democracy. This has gone down through the ages.

With all of that said, I don't remember Archer wanting (nor needing) a posse/clique. My point is that neither needs one beyond what is provide for protection.
