Toledo Police can work bar security jobs after signing waiver

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

There is new information regarding the Toledo mayor's decision to prevent off duty officers from providing security to bars and restaurants. The city says the change is due to the concern that officers working in the establishments were a liability to the officers and the city.

Toledo Police Patrolman's Association union president Daniel Wagner filed a grievance with the city on Tuesday. The grievance states that for the past 16 years, off duty work had been approved at bars and restaurants, and the change was made without proper documentation. The grievance also demands TPPA members are reimbursed for lost wages.

The grievance was filed after a memo was posted yesterday on a Toledo Police bulletin board. The memo is from the Chief William Moton's office listing the bars that officers are no longer able to provide security for. It does not include some establishments officers regularly work at such as El Camino and Fricker's in downtown Toledo; meaning officers are allowed to continue their work there.

Bar and restaurant management and owners say they are still unhappy with the policy change.

A new letter from the city's law department states officers can provide security if the officers sign a waiver and the bar owner signs off waiving any liability or workers compensation claims to the city.
