Newsflash: Has anyone tried “renting” an off-duty cop to deal with crime around property?

I have an 8-unit property that, until recently, was quiet and relatively crime-free. But in the last 2 months: One of my tenant’s units has been broken into, there was a police report/arrest right in front of the property, and tenants have reported suspicious creepers around the property late at night.I’m putting up a chain-link fence and some surveillance cameras to try to keep the riff-raff away from the property, but have thought about “renting” an off-duty cop for a night or two. Has anyone tried this and was it effective?
