    Hmmm, would there even be a department if we weren't allowed to drink off duty? It would definately be alot smaller

    Goldy, even if you could (which you can't), why would you want to work THAT as a secondary job? I'm guessing the chance for injury is high being a lifeguard. Hurt yourself while on your "own time", well, you are SOL. Basically while in the Acad and on Probation, you want to be as LOW KEY as possible, this includes what you do for fun and excitement. Nothing can screw a young career more than blowing out a knee or ripping a shoulder while "off-duty".

    18 months from hire (off probation) before secondary employment is allowed & rule #15 refers to intoxication on or off duty. This topic is covered very well while attending the academy. Good luck.

    You seem very knowledgeable. When in the academy, can a recruit work a part-time job, say 5-8pm M-F and weekend shifts, say as a lifeguard? I'll be guarding full time this summer (23 y/o F) until I HOPEFULLY get the call for the academy sometime this summer as I'm done with everything and my BI is done with me... I'd have to give it up completely I assume?
    Recruits cannot work secondary employment or go to school whilst in the academy. I would have to look into whether PPO's are even allowed secondary employment or school whilst on probation. I know for a fact that while in the academy there is no secondary employment or school.

I will have to ask where to find this rule. It's nothing to worry about. It's probably never enforced. It's just one of things to cover their asses.
    Actually I can carry a weapon into a bar. It is discouraged to carry a firearm when the possibility exists that I will consume alcoholic beverages, there is no blanket prohibition.

    CPD can not work in second jobs where the primary purpose of the establishment is to serve alcohol,i.e. bars. One can work at a restaurant for example but not as a night club bouncer.

    I don't think any LE job in the country looks highly upon their officers drinking off duty, they aren't going to encourage it, but if you are over 21, they aren't going to punish you for doing it...it's legal. There is a difference between going out and having a few beers and a going out and getting ripped and closing the bar at 4am.
