Ask HPD: Hiring Special Duty Officers

Q."Are there restrictions when hiring special duty officers?"

A. HPD officers hired for special duty assignments are off-duty. A special duty assignment can be requested if an off-duty officer is needed to maintain order, provide security, or facilitate traffic flow at an event or function. Special-duty officers cannot be hired to provide bodyguard services or be used at union gatherings. The HPD retains the right to decline a special-duty request. If you would like to hire a special duty officer, contact (808)723-3575 at least ten days before the event. We have more information on our website:
