    Chapter 493, Florida Statutes says that if you put any color other than "amber" on your car, you are impersonating official authority (not a law enforcement officer), and all your licenses are subject to revocation. Oh, and its a misdemeanor criminal offnese, as well.

    This is covered in the Class D Security Officer's Handbook.

    When I worked in Florida, it was a private thoroughbred horse farm community just between Ocala and Gainesville. The farm manager was told by law enforcement to equip us with blue lights. We were armed to the teeth and made arrests (in a few cases) just as if we were police officers.

    Was it simply the fact it was private property and high risk?

    On a real weird side note: Doesnt that seem strange to run Green? How do people respond to that?

    Keep in mind that if you're not governed by 493 in Florida, you can use Amber and White.

    This part is pretty interesting to me.. In Co, for the most part, its amber and white, but if classified as first responder service as well, red. We got the OK to use, red, but thats gonna be whole new bag to deal with, so we are still amber..

    Now this is what kills me, One of our malls, located in KS, they have blue. Dont know hwo the law works there, but interesting. Then, when I am shopping through our order catalog for our corporate, they also list green light bars.. Green? I wonder what states use those in the Security sector!

    Hotel Security:
    The letter "U" was used in the United States until the dictionary was rewritten by US lexicographer Noah Webster. He broke with the "Kings English" and referred to it as United States American English. All English writing countries other the the US still insert the "U" in their words.
    I was given the assignment of writting why the US did not insert the "U" in certain words as a student in the Sheriff's Academy in 1970.
    Enjoy the day,

    Amber is pretty much status quo for most areas.

    Depends where you are! I see you spell colour with a u so you are probably Canadian. Check with your provinces vehcile issuing agency. In Quebec it's the SSAQ. In all of Canada except Ontario red & blue is for police vehicles only. Red & red & white can be used by other emergency vehicles. Yellow is for service vehicles. You require a permit for any lightbar in Quebec, even a yellow one.

    In Ontario blue is for snow removal equipment.
