    Amusingly enough, I think it was made Amber only because security dared use different colors "than everyone else."
    Well, yes that's true. Kind of a gray area. But it says Security may only use Amber. Or does it say can use amber...gesh. It's late and I need to go to bed.

      Its not actually gray at all.

      If you are licensed under Chapter 493 (In other words, all armed and contract security personnel, all contract security companies, all contract security managers, all seaport security officers, etc...) you may not use any color but Amber, on public or private property.

      If you are not licensed, you may use any non-regulated color that is not specifically prohibited to posess (display or show). I believe only blue and red are specifically prohibited to posess. If you are operating the vehicles on private property, you may activate the lights at any time.

      If you are not licensed, you may not activate any color, including amber, on a public road. Period. Only "security companies licensed under Chapter 493" may activate amber lights on public roads, and only for the purposes of patrolling their sites.

          By law, Utah guards are required to have purple/green/amber/red or white lights, or a combination of any of these. If we run our lights for any reason on the public streets other than the warning strobes to notify of vehicle (I used to patrol construction sites on a highway that had absolutely no light, so I would use my back warning lights when idling and blacked out so I didn't get hit), or to direct traffic, you have to have a State First Responder license. You can run any form of above mentioned lights on your property anytime you want. Esp. GRN/PRPL. /

                    I think he means people using the title "rentacop" in their name.

                      And as a side note, I ran through the 31 pages of members, and these are the "rent a cop" names I found.

                            PA is Green?

                            I've NEVER seen a security vehicle with a Green light here in PA. Everyone uses amber. Do you have a reference to PA Code or Vehicle Code, or have you just seen security companies using green?

                            One of the reasons that green isn't used often is that in the ICS structure, a green light identifies the Command Post.

                              We noticed that by using just amber, the results of contact cooperation from others isnt high, but when combining amber with white, both being strobes, we get great results. It gets interesting.

                              So is it just FL or PA that has the law change on colors?

                                Florida has had this law since the 1980s. Its just, like other sections, nobody noticed.
