  • Do cops have contracts?

    Title says it all. My mom is a teacher and she has contracts with the school systems, some people told me they think police officers are the same. Is this the case?

      Police officers usually have union contracts. Police chiefs usually have individual contracts.

          Do you mean like contracted labor? As in, a private company contracted to do police work for a Police dept? Or union-type contracts about working conditions etc.. The latter yes, the former I highly doubt. Infact I would be highly opposed to that.

            We have a union contract with the city, very similar to the teacher's union contract. Not all departments will have a union and/or contract, though.

                Many Police agencies have contracts (labor agreements) with their employing entities. I reside in a part of the nation where police labor contracts are very rare. That is simply a statement of fact as things exist in the South, not a slam at agencies/officers with contract agreements.

                  It depends on what you mean by "contract." A labor/union contract or a we-don't-automatically-have-to-rehire-you-at-the-end-of-your-contract contract?

                        The only contract that I've seen is when my agency paid for Officers to attend the academy and paid them during their enrollment. They were required to do 3 (I think) years before leaving the agency or they had to repay the cost of training them. One of those rookies challenged it when he wanted to leave and an attorney said the contract wasn't legal (someone about the terms or wording). The PD didn't go after him for the monies.

                        We don't have unions in NC.

                        I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                          I forgot about that. I know it's pretty common for SO's around here to do that. If they send a current jailer to the academy for a peace officer certificate, some SO's require them to sign a contract stating that they won't use their newly acquired certificate to jump ship. I think a lot of smaller SO's do this. I believe it's due to the lack of patrol openings when they return from the academy. Most return to the jail until a spot on patrol opens up.

                            Five-year contract you have to sign to be employed with us. Anything above rank of LT requires an annual contract. That's normally what you get when you work for an Airport Authority and answer to CEOs/COOs as a department head. Once I'm out of the 5-yr gap, then no contract exists.

                              Most teachers sign employment contracts.......................to work a set number of days for a set number of $$$$$$ They might also have union contracts that apply but they actually sign personal employment contracts.

                              Police officers do not at least in my knowledge. As Smurf stated ---many times they sign contracts that allow them to be sent to the academy and promise to work for the department for a set timeframe or they will have to pay back the cost of that training. That still does not amount to a personal service contract.
                              Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important
