WE CAN HELP MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY SAFER

Professional Security Resources, Inc. (PSR) was started in 2005 to assist our community association management clients with security and traffic control inside of their neighborhoods. PSR partners with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Off-Duty Events Unit to place uniformed Hillsborough County officers, driving their regular patrol vehicles, in communities all across the county.

Do you have areas in your community where speeding affects the safety of your families? Does the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office have the budget to address speeding in your community as frequently as you would prefer? Is it time for your community to step up and target specific speeding areas or crime issues in your community in addition to regular duty officers?

WE MAKE HIRING OFF-DUTY OFFICERS EASY!

Professional Security Resources, Inc. provides a centralized payroll service and the insurance coverages required by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office for working off-duty officers. We handle every aspect of the payroll and administrative process for you, so you can concentrate on your core responsibility of keeping your community safe.

Professional Security Resources, Inc. is the employer of record for your officers with W-2 responsibility, appropriate FICA, FUTA, SUTA payments, plus workers compensation and general liability insurances. Most law enforcement agencies require the hiring entity to indemnify them, and state statutes (FS 30.2905) make any public or private employer responsible for the acts or omissions of a deputy sheriff while working off-duty.

There may also be potential IRS implications for paying off-duty law enforcement officers as independent contractors without the necessary tax withholding. For this reason, HCSO requires their officers to be paid as employees and prohibits them from working as independent contractors. If you choose to compensate an off-duty officer as an independent contractor rather than as an employee as required, be certain to discuss this issue with your contracting agency as well as your legal counsel and tax advisor.

WORKERS' COMPENSATION INSURANCE

Our workers' compensation insurance is written specifically for law enforcement officers and protects your organization as well as the officer. (Class Code 7720)

GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE

Our General Liability Policy has a $3,000,000 general aggregate limit and provides contractual protections for negligent acts and losses due to errors and omissions. Your organization will be included as an additional insured on our policy.

HASSLE-FREE PROCESS

You still manage the onsite program and work with your local officers directly. We simply take care of the administrative hassles of payroll and insurance with easy online reporting by the officer, usually right from their car.

ELIMINATES IRS CONCERNS

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) frowns upon organizatioons that avoid the payment of proper payroll taxes by improperly claiming independent contractor status. Make sure you thoroughly review your contract with the law enforecement agency as well as discussing it with your tax professional.
