Extra Duty Detail

Formerly Special Events Policing Detail, this program and how policing services are provided on a private contract basis has been the subject of a comprehensive review by the Edmonton Police Service (EPS).

The review has resulted in the new Extra Duty Detail Business Rules. This document details the EPS’ Extra Duty Detail business practices and processes. Effective March 31, 2014, it is the way the EPS conducts this business.

Two strong themes emerge:

  • Effective risk management is provided through a layered security model in which police play a part, but are not the sole proprietor; and
  • Where true policing activities are required, there will be more integration with the public policing model for effective risk management.

The Extra Duty Detail Business Rules outlines how and why the police may contribute to an event, what can be expected when police are on scene, as well as how extra duty assignments are administered and managed.

These rules aim to increase transparency and trust, and outline expectations related to how the EPS’ Extra Duty Detail addresses client assets, risks and public safety.

If you plan to request Extra Duty Detail, please read and understand this document.


As a result of the Extra Duty Detail business review recently completed and implemented, the negotiated rate of pay for Edmonton Police members will be subject to the collective bargaining agreement between the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Police Association.

Please be advised that the current rates of pay for EPS members, as of January 1, 2016, are subject to increase as a result of contract negotiations. View our 2016 rates or view our 2017 rates.

Please check back to this page for regular updates. Our office will be mailing out information to all our valued stakeholders and clients.

Applying for police services through Extra Duty Detail

After reading the Extra Duty Detail Business Rules, an application for Extra Duty Detail services can be made by completing the Extra Duty Detail Application Form. An Application Guide is available to assist with its completion.

All requests for Extra Duty Detail services must be received through this application process, unless an exemption is authorized by the Staff Sergeant in charge of Extra Duty Detail.

The application process has been refined to enable repeat clients to pre-fill all the foundational information and have a template ready for their use. Therefore changes and updates specific to a new request are the only fields that require attention. This will hopefully make the application process both convenient and useful. It is recommended that all clients review the form and identify the information required, prior to completing an application.

For further information on the process, criteria and requests for police services through Extra Duty Detail, please contact the Extra Duty Detail office.
