    You're allowed to fight back? Wow. Usually you are not, as that is being confrontational.

Reason being is atleast here they have a policy for their officers that you have to be hit >> 3 << times before you can even fight back. 3 times! No way lol.
      For a Ferrari filled with 100 dollar bills I could keep... I'd take 3 hits before turning the suspect's head into a canoe.

            Yeah, that doesn't sound like an urban legend or anything.

              I got that information first hand from 2 security guards in our phase 1 & 2 class that were working for Securitas at the time under their conditional.
              We may not be sworn in, have all the powers of arrest as a peace officer, or are able to run red & blues, but damnit, when the chips are down, the **** hits the fan, and the bullets are flying, me and an LEO share the same dumpster for cover, and spill the same blood in the same mud. All other differences are just details.

                It pretty much does sound like Securitas policy. From the General Orders books I've seen, guards are prohibited from defending themselves generally, and are to run away and call their supervisor if confronted. Under no circumstances are they to "confront" anyone.

                  And they got it from....Where? Other guards? 'Supervisors'? Policy manual?

                  No place I know of, least of all a mega-corp like Securitas, is going to risk getting sued like crazy by actually enacting and recording a policy like that.

                  Disclaimer: I've worked for them, both armed and unarmed, and have never seen/heard of anything remotely like that. It was always something along the lines of "don't start anything, but if being assaulted is unavoidable somehow, use the minimum force necessary to stop the assault and call local law right away".

                  AlliedBarton, on the other hand, apparently (word of mouth seems to be a frequent factor in this thread) have a policy stating that if someone tries to take you hostage, you should 'give in and surrender'. The guard who told me that quit at that point in her training class.
