Course overview

The differences between the arrest authority and legal powers of security officers and law enforcement officers may seem like a grey area. This course will draw a line between the legal powers and limitations between police and peace officers vis-à-vis security officers, elaborate on your right to citizen's arrest, and detail the custody procedures upon your issuance of citizen's arrest.
