Control overtime costs & minimize compliance risk
Many police departments are paying unnecessary overtime costs to avoid last minute scheduling scrambles to ensure they have the right person in the right place during an emergency — VCS can ensure positions are always filled properly, but at a fraction of the cost. POSS manages scheduling to minimize unnecessary overtime and promote fair extra duty assignments by automatically granting or denying overtime based on specific requirements that you set and tracking patterns and budgets with extensive analytics and real-time reporting. With POSS, you can distribute overtime fairly, calculate payroll rules and ensure that the right employees with the right skill sets are always in the right place at the right time.
Outsource your entire extra duty employment process
In police officer scheduling, the terms extra duty, special duty and off duty refer to times where a police officer is not scheduled to work a regular shift, but they are nonetheless hired to work events paid by third parties. Traditionally, these events were scheduled by personnel in the precincts’ administration departments, but recently, more and more police departments have been making the switch to utilize a new best practice – outsourcing their extra duty management with our service Jobs4Blue. In doing so, police departments are now able to leave tedious extra duty administrative work in the hands of scheduling professionals, streamlining the entire process, reducing compliance issues, and overall finding a solution to long-standing challenges.
