Providence owed more than $1M in overdue detail fees

Providence officials say the city is owed more than $1 million in police and firefighter detail fees from private contractors.

Detail fees are charged to businesses and organizations that require police or firefighters on hand, including at bars, nightclubs, festivals or other events.

The Providence Journal reports the city pays police and firefighters up front when a detail is required and is supposed to get reimbursed.

A City Council Finance Committee report shows that more than 180 businesses and organizations owe the city $1.2 million in fees.

The mayor's office says the city has established an escalating scale of warnings that culminate in a bill being turned over to a collection agency after six months.
