Officers and a former patrolman were all indicted on Thursday after being found guilty of a scam in the south Phoenix housing complex, pocketing thousands of dollars.
"As a result, Phoenix police leaders Thursday ordered a full review of the department's off-duty work program. The program, which the department provides as a community service, provides uniformed off-duty officers to guard construction sites, serve as extra protection against shoplifters at stores and work as requested by private businesses in thousands of other assignments. Officers can earn more than $40 per hour. The program provides $30 million in extra wages annually to officers, Public Safety Manager Jack Harris said."
