Ohio cops to pay $5 per hour for off-duty jobs

The president of the national Fraternal Order of Police says the plan sounds "almost like extortion"

CINCINNATI — Police officers who work extra hours at private businesses soon will have to pay the city back almost $5 for every hour.

The "service charge," as the city is calling it, means that an officer who works off duty at a library or grocery store will pay $4.90 for every hour worked. A police officer earns $31 an hour, a rate set by union contract, with amounts increasing by rank to $47 an hour for captains. The money, starting April 15, will come out of their paychecks via payroll deduction.
