Paid detail police work has grown in recent years across municipal/local and state/provincial
jurisdictions in the United States and Canada, but not without controversy. Using Stennings
(2000) accountability framework for private and public police, we consider how and the extent to
which the private employment of public police is regulated and rendered accountable. To accomplish
this, we draw on interviews with 63 employers of paid detail as well as police officers,
policies collected through freedom of information requests from 30 North American police departments
about paid detail procedures as well as logs, and media coverage of paid detail issues.
We found incredible variation in how paid detail is regulated, as well as many instances where
accountability and oversight are lacking. After examining the consequences of ineffective or
absent accountability mechanisms, we suggest a more uniform approach to paid detail standards.
We conclude by discussing future research about paid detail regulation and policy.
