    The Frederick Group has recently bought Schmitt Security Police, so they're now calling themselves "Schmitt Protective Services a division of the Federick Group."

    This means I'll just go out tomorrow and get pictures of their patrol cars that say "SCHMITT SECURITY POLICE" on them.

      Keep in mind there are several companies in this state that routinely make arrests for breaches of the peace (disorderly conduct), and their respective public police agencies actually like them. I know, I've asked the cops involved, and they freakin LOVE their "private police" counterparts cause it means less work for them.
      I believe you Nathan. I'm not saying it's illegal. In fact, case law has been used to substantiate it. What I am saying is that a prosecutor could try to make an issue out of it since the wording is not crystal clear. The wise thing to do is make sure that you have the backing of the local DA before you arrest on a misdemeanor. If so, no problem.

        Indeed, unless you're company specifically advertises itself as private law enforcement services (and some do in this state), you won't be enforcing laws through citizen's arrest. Those that do usually have the blessing of their local DA (who is elected), their sheriff (who is elected), and their police department (who probably has half the force working for you part time for more hours.)

        One that was here that comes to mind is Metro Racine Safety Enforcement. They don't call themselves private police, but they run red lights to the front, they make arrests, they work with the local police, and some of the guys who work for them are cops.

        • When I worked security at coal mines during a layoff, we drove "white chevy 4x4 trucks" which was fun to take off road when chasing kids on ATVs

          • As far as vehicles:

            I've driven just about everything, from a beat up, POS Suburban that was literally falling apart around me, to brand new Impalas, to Quads. Currently, we're using 2004 Jeep Liberty (I do NOT recommend these things..."trail rated" my rear. They get stuck in a gob of spit.). We also have two Trek mountain bikes, and a 2006 Yamaha Rhino 660.

            As far as the "powers of arrest" question:

            I LOVE Nevada.

            NRS 171.126 Arrest by private person. A private person may arrest another:
            1. For a public offense committed or attempted in his presence.
            2. When the person arrested has committed a felony, although not in his presence.
            3. When a felony has been in fact committed, and he has reasonable cause for believing the person arrested to have committed it.
            (Added to NRS by 1967, 1402)

            Personally, I wouldn't try this one, but:

            NRS 171.138 Breaking open door or window: Making arrest. To make an arrest, a private person, if the offense is a felony, and in all cases a peace officer, may break open a door or window of the house, structure or other place of concealment in which the person to be arrested is, or in which there is reasonable grounds for believing him to be, after having demanded admittance and explained the purpose for which admittance is desired.
            (Added to NRS by 1967, 1402; A 1983, 244)

            NRS 171.134 Escape or rescue of arrested person: Pursuit and retaking at any time and place in State. If a person arrested escapes or is rescued, the person from whose custody he escaped or was rescued may immediately pursue and retake him at any time and in any place within the State.
            (Added to NRS by 1967, 1402)


            NRS 171.144 Breaking open door or window: Retaking person arrested. To retake a person arrested who has escaped or been rescued, the person pursuing may break open an outer or inner door or window of a dwelling house, structure or other place of concealment, if, after notice of his intention, he is refused admittance.
            (Added to NRS by 1967, 1402)

            • Most states that codify arrest give private citizens the same powers as LEOs in use of force and retaking of escaped prisoners. Why? Because if the state doesn't empower LEOs to have statewide jurisdiction, then a LEO who takes action outside of their jurisdiction has to use the same powers available to the rest of us.

              • not your normal security patrol vehicle

                Our department uses Crown Vics, they are marked with a door badge and lettering, the lightbars are purple to the front, and red / amber to the rear. also our Chief has installed l.e.d. bars in the back window. if i can figure out how to up load an image, i would show you.

                    • this is a bad pic of my office

                      this pic was taken with a video cam, so the pix are low. as you can see our patrol cars do not use green in the lightbar. we are a "in-house" department, our vehicles only operate on the owners property. contract security here in Columbus can only us green or amber. we do not have cages in the cars, but we do have computers, L.E.D. lighting, spotlights, and P.A. systems. we use UHF radios, and our computers just have the paperwork and forms that we use in the field ( no records check or leads).

                      • vehicle inspection

                        incase you are wondering how we can use this set up with our vehicles. we have letters from the Dept. of Public Safety here in Columbus. we do get alot of contract security officers or smaller police dept. drive up to us and say "you cant have that". all we do is pull out the letter, copy of the laws, and advise them they are on our property, and then send them on their way. i do think that all forms of security patrol department should be able to use anything but maybe blue lights on their vehicles. yes we are not law enforcement, but we see more of the crime and deal with more criminals then alot of Police officers do. the envroment that i patrol in is mostly HUD houseing, and inner-city. the local Police officers in our area are too busy because they are under staffed, so most of the crimnals in my area see Secuirty alot more then they see the Police. futhermore, because of the under staffed local police department, you see less and less of those Police officers working extra duty at stores, apartments, and so forth. this forces the owners of these properties to hire private security to fill in for the short fall. a good example of this will be this Satuday when OSU plays Michigan, all Columbus Officers have to work 12 hour shifts, and will be patrolling a small part of our city ( around the OSU campus). so this leaves the rest of our city short of responding officers.

                            if you were asking about the lightbar, its all purple to the front (the white takedown lights dont flash), the rear is red with amber flashers. we are looking at new L.E.D bars here soon, our chief is looking at the fronts being green / white, and keeping the rear the same.
