August 17, 2001, during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The letter requested the Chief to “check off whether or not the[ ] requests [could] be accommodated,” photocopy the letter, and return it by July 13, 2001. The Chief checked “[a]pproved” and signed the letter. Other than the letter, the record does not show that the Department and the Academy executed any formal agreement with regard to Walrond’s services as a duty officer. In addition, Walrond did not enter into any written agreement with the Academy regarding his service as a duty officer. During his week at the Academy, Walrond was to be paid his regular salary by the Department. The Academy was not obligated to compensate Walrond or reimburse the Department for his services. Indeed, we were advised at oral argument that the Academy is funded by the several counties that participate in its program and that it collects tuition from the recruits. The Academy’s “Policies and Procedures Manual” provides a detailed description of the role and responsibilities of a “Recruit Duty Officer.” These duties include ensuring the safety and security of vehicles and lockers used by the recruits during training; supervising the recruits while they eat lunch; monitoring recruit classes and breaks; engaging recruits “concerning their appearance, their behavior, their knowledge, etc.”; reviewing recruit notebooks; looking out for unsafe conditions; and generally setting a good example for recruits to follow. If duty officers are certified in physical training, the manual further provides that they “will be dressed in the day’s [physical training] uniform” at the designated time. During the first day of Walrond’s assignment as “Recruit Duty Officer,” he performed various tasks upon behalf of the Academy.

Later that day, at around 2:00 p.m., the recruit class was scheduled to participate in an outdoor physical training session. These sessions generally involve running, calisthenics, and various other exercises. Shortly before the session began, an Academy instructor informed Walrond that he could leave if he desired. However, Walrond told the instructor that he was scheduled by his chief to remain at the Academy until later that afternoon and he would therefore stay for the training session. Because Walrond was not a certified physical trainer, he could not provide direct instruction to the recruits. However, he was permitted to encourage and assist the recruits during the session.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
