    If they carry a badge in your area, its a square badge that says "Security Guard," per NYS law. Most likely, they do not, as it was the LP policy that identifying yourself as a wal-mart employee was enough - badges convey lawful authority and the merchant's identification as a merchant is more than ample lawful authority.

    Because every man is a rifleman? Seriously, though, he would have to work independently, getting his own quota. Nobody would hire someone "just" for backup, because that person dosen't generate LP arrests and recover merchandise by themselves - they don't "pull their weight" and therefore justify the expense of hiring him.

    Many LP departments are seen as a deficit, so they have to justify how many people, how many hours, and who corporate is spending money on. If the LP department dosen't produce, then the return on investment is extremely low, and they need replaced.

    If you are looking for LP... go to Macy's. One of the best LP programs I have seen, they wont hire me though. I guess being 6'5 doesnt help you blend in enough. (at least this is what a lot of former LPOs are telling me. )

    I think that they give you a badge with a smiley face in the middle and instruct you to ask the arrestee: "Will that be paper or plastic" for the restraints.

    Sorry, I had too much coffee.

    Wal-Mart is a private company, which means you need no licensing or other requirements. You would work for the company itself as a "loss prevention associate."

    The requirements are simple: You must be 18 year old, have excellent credit, a clean criminal background, and a pulse. There are no other requirements imposed by any state or governmental agency.

    Apply directly at any wal-mart, after you apply on the kiosk, or fill out an application in Layway, ask the Layway Associate for an Assistant Manager. Ask the Assistant Manager for the number to the District Loss Prevention Manager. It will be a long distance number, voice mail. Give the voice mail a call, and inform him/her that your interested in working for Wal-Mart Loss Prevention at the "Whatever, Washington" store, and you have an application in.
