Serbs seeking a bit of extra
protection or perhaps a helicopter for the weekend can now turn
to the police, which from this month will be renting out its
personnel, transport and even animals for private use.

More here.  Of course, there is a history of private firms hiring police in Washington, DC.

Thanks to Carl Close for the pointer.

When the Red Sox needed Doug Mirabelli to get to a game on time, they hired a police escort to take him from the airport to Fenway park.

How can you hire a police escort? That really sounds like a business and I don’t think that the police which is a special institution should allow that. When I read this, the first thought that came into my mind was “rental cops”. Criminal Background Check
