When an employee reports to private work and is notified that the work is canceled, he/she shall receive four (4) hours pay at time and one half the hourly rate.
The Chief of Police or his/her designated representative shall make all private duty assignments. Commencing with the signing of this agreement, all employees' names shall be included in the private/extra duty roster by order seniority.

If that employee accepts, works or refuses the assignment, his/her name will be moved to the bottom of the list and the next employee will be contacted. If the employee cannot be contacted, the next employee will be called, but the first employee will not lose his/her place in the rotation. In the event the private/duty assignment roster is exhausted, the Chief of Police, or his/her designee may allow employees not on the list to accept the assignment.
