We train our security guards thoroughly. They can and will make an arrest if necessary. They understand the extent of the legal rights present when making a citizen’s arrest. However, our guards are prohibited from using handcuffs or any kind of restraint. Due to this, our guards do not have any special devices available when making a citizen’s arrest.
When making an arrest caution is necessary. If a guard feels an arrest could compromise their personal safety, they reserve the right to call 911 instead of performing a citizen’s arrest. Once 911 is called, the guard will provide a detailed description of the situation and subject. The guard will also continue monitoring the suspect till a police officer arrives or as long as possible.
