    Would you say utilizing Special Police Officers is a wiser choice, as they are employed directly by the company?

    At times I have hired off duty officers to work shoplifting. There were issues including following company policies regarding the apprehension of shoplifters. Even though they agreed to following the policies during the interview phase when it came to actual practice the company policy went out the door and I had to terminate their services.

    I often heard, "we are law enforcement - we don't need to follow your "6-steps." The problem is when the lawsuits hit the fan, they are working for you in your stores. The only advantage is they have powers of arrest.

    Good example of why using ODO's is a BAD idea.
    Seems like a lot of the ODO screw up doing private security work.

    He was working off duty gig for a private security contractor versus working directly for the
    police department on overtime. So I assume he made a citizens arrest versus a arrest as a Police Officer??

    Harold Burrowes was tased and wrongly arrested after purchasing thousands of dollars worth of Walmart gift cards, and now, he’s suing the company for $5 million.


    Back in September of 2011, Burrowes, the owner of a wrecker service, purchased over $3,000 in Walmart gift cards to be used to buy diesel fuel. Burrowes says that he had been doing that instead of issuing company credit cards so his tow truck drivers could purchase fuel.


    When Burrowes went to purchase the gift cards, the cashier informed him that he wasn’t allowed to buy them using another gift card.
