Hiring an Off-Duty Police Officer

Off-duty Paducah Police officers may be hired by the public to perform security and traffic control services.  Officers are often hired to provide security and traffic control at large and small events, traffic control for road construction or other projects in the roadway, security for meetings, and many other situations including weddings, graduations, birthday parties, jewelry store security, and sporting events.  For more information, including rates, application, and contract, visit Hiring an Off-Duty Police Officer.

Reserving a Park Shelter, Noble Park Amphitheatre, or Noble Park Bandstand

  • If a shelter has been reserved through the Parks office by an individual or entity paying the rental fee, then it would not be available to the public on that date.  All shelters are available on a first-come, first-serve basis at no charge, if the shelter has not been reserved.  There is a fee to reserve specific shelters.
  • "RESERVED" signs have been installed at shelters #5, #7, #8, #10, #12, #16, and #19 (the most commonly reserved shelter pavilions). Signs will be flipped to "RESERVED" by Paducah Parks & Recreation if there is a scheduled reservation that day. 
  • Reservations are for the entire day (from the time the park opens until it closes).  Shelters/pavilions are not available for partial-day or hourly rental.
  • No shelter may be reserved less than five (5) business days prior to the date of the reservation.
  • Discounts are available to official, documented non-profit organizations.
  • Groups from outside McCracken County will not be allowed discounts and a 50 percent surcharge will be added to the reservation fee for the group. 
  • The person reserving the shelter is responsible for securing any appropriate permits, utility hook-ups, decorations, or other special requirements.
  • Shelter reservations include the standard amenities normally located at each shelter including picnic tables and trash cans.
  • Electricity can be obtained for an additional $30 daily charge from green power boxes located near most shelters.
