    Cool Now that's a pursuit

    And that's what I'd call having a bit of fun on the job, too -- and earning the respect of law enforcement at same time.

    Geoff, even though this happened in England, there are so many things wrong with what this guy did I don't know where to begin. It does make for a great story though.

    Default Nice job but

    I agree with Curtis. Wonder what his company will say about this? My limited experience with contract work was we were totally hands off let them get away.

    Wow. Uhhh...

    I'm glad to see no one was injured or killed, and no property damage resulted; the kudoes from police and store management likely would have had a considerably different tone.

    And to all new security officers, working here in the US: don't try this at home! (!!!)

    Fun story, though.

    Like 5423 and others noted, this is definitely a case of "Don't Try This at Home!"

    This Security officer could be arrested in US (especially in California).
    We are not allowed to do pursuit.
    Follow the suspect with safe distance with obeying traffic law maybe OKay. but I don't think business insurance will cover for his action if anything happened. He left his post and did something beyond his duty.

    When I was watching live TV news feed, LAPD arrested or cited when civilian bystander (other car) try to stop carjack suspect in pursuit.

    We are civilians whose duty is Protect and Prevent not Catch and enforce.

    Don't try that at home.

    in fact, few years back, there was multi-agency pursuit in LA area.
    all agency's unit lost sight of suspect vehicle.
    LAPD helicopter and News helicopter spotted only one B&W Police motorcycle is following right behind suspect vehicle.
    Police chopper contacted to HQ and all agency try to find which agency's motor it was.
    No agency could contact with the one behind of suspect vehicle.

    few minutes later, Police units found suspect vehicle still in pursuit by un-known motor officer.
    After they arrest suspect, nobody knew where or who was un-known motor officer.

    few days of investigation, Police concluded it was maybe civilian security motor or Funeral motor escort in uniform.
    LAPD crack down to motor mounted security at night club, Restaurant and Event site try to cite(!) illegal pursuit he did.
    I don't know if they found who he was or not but one of my friends was questioned by LAPD for his alibi.

    It's very thin ice between illegal and Voluntary help unless having peace officer's credential.

    Firstly,

    I will give the credit to the news agency that actually published this story. If this would have happened here (And/or) anywhere near here the local media would have hung this S/O out to dry. Then the Canadian Criminal Code wouldve slapped him in the face.
    Wouldve lost his job, his Security License, had a Criminal Record and wouldve been stuck working at mcdonalds.

    Secondly,
    Kudos to this S/O for assisting in Catching this scumbag. A big thing I noticed in the comments that were published about him is he sounded like he was very concerned for public safety even while participating in the pursuit. Once he realized that Police had the suspects "caught" he pulled over and let them do what they had to do.

    Good job,
    And as stated before DONT DO THIS AT HOME... Unless you want to look for a new job or have another one lined up

    I remember that chase... To this day, I think it was one of those movie cops.
