Cincinnati Council is again debating the police department's program where off-duty officers provide security for business and organizations in the city. The issue is who should pay for the administration costs of the program.

Council's Budget and Finance Committee heard this week the off-duty detail program costs the city about $676,000 a year.

City Budget Director Lea Eriksen said that translates to about $3.28 per hour.

Eriksen also said officials weighed the benefits off-duty officers have for public safety in the city.

CityLink Executive Director Johnmark Oudersluys said that changed in the spring of 2010, when leaders decided instead to focus on the working poor.
