    I wouldn't get out of bed for $9.75/hour. We just pick more OT up here, especially when the going OT rate is $45/hour. Some guys work for local banks doing ATM withdrawls and deposits in the morning, and all they do is stand by the bank guy while he does everything. They make around $20/hour.

Something that keeps me busy but brings in some cash for beer or the sort. I've even thought about working for the local propane company painting propane tanks on the schedule I want. I guess it is all what you are working extra for.

    I was a short order cook for 4 years total....between 2 1/2 years in high school, to a year and a half between getting out of the military and going to the Police Academy. I went back to work at the same place for a little while, but got tired of Minimum wage after being promised a min. rate of $9.75/hour. Never came through, so i quit. Showing up. And I am a damn good cook, one of the fastest, best looking and tasting food as many customers said.

    A few years before I retired I started doing gardening work on my street. My neighbors were tired of their no speak english gardners. They were all impressed with my beautiful yard and how I took care of it. Within 2 months I was doing every yard on my street (13) which brought in about 1500.00 a month. I was on a 4-10 shift so it gave me plenty of time to do my gardening.
    When I retired I continued to do gardening which I really enjoy. It gives me plenty of walking exercise. My neighbors call me the gardner with a gun.

That sort of thing. I can easily pick up a client or two on my days off. Plus the pay is like $14/hr (better than a typical part time job).

    Wow, even in a 20 man department I would think there would be a bank job here or there...something...somewhere.....guess things aren't always as they should be for cops everywhere.

    I hope you find some type of gig brother.

    there should be road jobs, bank jobs, escorts....hospital security...things that usually pay 25-35 or more bucks per hour. Or maybe that's just a Texas thang.
    That's a bigger city thing. My last Agency was located in a town of 10K......

    We got some school events that the campus needed help with, some stuff at the local HS, and that was about it......

    I know they're probably working on it, but so far, they haven't figured out how to tax comp time.

    Guess it would be a pretty good way to find out about them.

    So I'm a rookie, still on probation an FTO. I need to get a second part time job...but I can't do any details until I am done with training.

    Any body got any good idea on where to go an what kind to look for? No way in hell am I delivering pizza's, I can't afford the gas!
    Probably a dumb question, but does your department offer O/T?. Reason I ask is, my department, Alabama DPS restricts any O/T while an Officer is doing FTO. Private off-duty employment is tightly controlled, and limited to no more than twenty hours per week. Tremendous opportunities exist for O/T on highway construction projects, enforcement in highway construction zones, and extra enforcement,(much Federally funded) on holidays, "Click it or Ticket programs, etc. Don't blame you on the Pizza gig.
