Off-duty Odessa officers banned from working bars
from Odessa American
A change in an Odessa Police Department policy will leave local bars without off-duty police officers to provide security, a move that has left bar owners and managers perplexed and cops upset but unwilling to speak out publicly. OPD has announced that as of Sept. 1 it will no longer allow its officers to work secondary jobs at any commercial establishment that possesses a mixed beverage license.
