If you need the Palmer Police Department for any of these, it's going to cost you.
The Board of Supervisors has set the rates for police department services for 2013, approving a motion at its meeting Monday.
"These are the rates we charge for someone using our services," Supervisors Chairman Dave Colver said.
The fees are:
- $57 an hour.
- An additional $13 an hour if a police car is needed.
- $40 an hour for part-time morning and afternoon patrols at Tracy Elementary School.
"The rates reflect the on-duty hours," Police Chief Larry Palmer said. "Others cover overtime. We're not making any on this — we're breaking even."
