member is acting in the scope of employment for the outside employer. Except as
provided in this rule, state benefits and protection, including liability
insurance coverage and workers compensation benefits for related injuries and
disability, will not apply while the sworn member is performing off-duty police

Public Safety, will be responsible for such coverage.

arising out of such approved use of the vehicle.
Requests for employment by another state
agency shall be in writing and shall conform to the requirements for Off-Duty
Police Employment. In addition to the requirement stated in this policy, a
release shall be provided by the sworn member which states:

the Department and another state agency result in the sworn member being
eligible for overtime, the overtime shall be the responsibility of the other
agency up to the maximum hours worked by the other agency, and
(b) In the event the sworn member requests or
becomes entitled to overtime pay as a result of working outside the Department
for another agency, the outside employer or other state agency shall bear the
