CAN A “SECURITY GUARD” MAKE AN ARREST?
Many states permit security guards to make arrests.
Many rent-a-cops are also off duty cops out there to pick up an extra dollar.
It is best to treat a rent-a- cop with the same concern as a police officer. But it gets worse.
Rent-a-cops are not real cops, so you don’t have constitutional rights if they violate your rights. That’s a wow!
If a security guard tells you to stop: Stop. Do not speak or explain. You do not have any constitutional protections with a rent-a-cop.
Demand he release you or call a police officer. Be smart….. be safe….. be silent.
