                          Does South Metro allow you to buy back time if you have service in a different department?

                              No.

                              Is that a common practice elsewhere?

                              And by 'buy back' do you mean retirement?

                              South Metro does not participate in a pension plan for its retirement. Rather, their retirement plan is a 401A that is build like a mutual fund. There is no pension for you to buy back into.
