Frequently Asked Questions
When do I need a police detail ?
Any/All construction type work
which is done in the public right of way (street/sidewalk)
requires a police detail. Any job that does not have a detail
officer and is considered a public safety hazard will be shut
down. The police detail officer will determine whether or not a
detail officer is required as stated in the City of Woonsocket
Do I need a police detail for
a private function?
There are currently no guidelines for hiring detail officers for
private functions. It is completely up to the business/person
hosting the function. If a detail officer is requested, the
detail officer will determine how many officers will be needed
for the event. Detail officers for such events are usually hired
to keep the peace and maintain order.
