The Off Duty Services (ODS) team works closely with their clients on a regular basis to ensure that their security needs are met. ODS is also there to support our clients in the face of a crisis event or natural disaster. In the month of late August and early September, Hurricane Harvey and Irma both affected the coasts of the U.S. creating State of Emergencies, thus, making it impossible to outsource off duty police from the affected areas. By having a national capability, ODS was able to recruit 100’s of off duty officers outside the affected areas and deploy them quickly where they were needed for extended periods of time.
Under very difficult circumstances the officers that were deployed were able to overcome severe conditions, having to deal with the lack of water, food, power or fuel. Clearly, these men and women are among the heroes that prevailed under these horrific conditions and were amid the first responders to bring order. The Off Duty Services management team salutes you for your commitment to preserving peace in the midst of chaos.
