Natick to charge for use of cruiser in police details

After reviewing the policies of nearby communities, Natick will be charging private companies who want a police cruiser at road construction sites an additional $25 an hour. The Board of Selectmen approved the change last week.

The town charges, on average, $37 an hour to have an off-duty officer stationed at a work site to help traffic maneuver safely past construction equipment and crews, according to Police Chief James Hicks. Until now, companies have not been charged an additional fee if they wanted a cruiser there as part of the paid detail.
