    Biggest Drug Arrest, Let's Hear Your Story

    During the course of a physical survey, I interviewed some street people, after buying them a hot breakfast, they provided some valuable information concerning drug dealing in the early morning hours in and around the buildings. You don't supply meals in return for information. You supply the meals to folks in need and hope for the best. I relayed the information to the appropriate agency. They had heard only vague rumors. They went to work and as they say, the rest is history. The pen in this instance was mighter than the sword.
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    I remember back in '89, I was walking my beat on the second floor, and I got a call from dispatch about some suspicious subjects out at the main entrance. It was a boring night, and I wanted something to do, so I ran to the squad (it was a SWEET '88 Crown Vic) and flew over to the entrance. Sure enough, these two 16 year old kids were dealing with about a half pound of pot. I hit the lights and put the spot light on them. They went running off and I started a foot pursuit. I called it in to dispatch, and they called the local police. It was great! I caught one and the cop got the other. I got to cuff the guy and everything! Man, I would give anything to have that kind of action again!

    Please keep posts professional

    EMTFirefighter, it's one thing to ask for more information, it's another to troll. Please refrain from any attacks. Our policy is to remove users who troll, flame or otherwise attack another poster. These forums were developed to improve communication inside our industry, and I think much of what occurs here is very useful. Let's keep the personal attacks toned down.

    If you have a reading comprehension problem, please take appropriate courses. I suggest that whatever agenda you have be directed to something more worthwhile, perhaps back over on Officer.com.

    You were not present, nor are you capable of rendering any informed opinion on the subject, not even being a resident of the state in question.

    Largest "bust" I had was not an actual bust, but was the systematic dismantling of a drug operation covering half of my property and two other properties, with multiple drug runners and dealers, some on property, some off property.

    Working with Tampa Police, we systematically stopped every runner or dealer on our property - not for drugs, but to verify they lived on property and to enforce trespassing laws. When they were searched for their safety and ours, drugs were sometimes found, and they were then detained for posession and the QUAD squad called - not radio units.

    Part of a security officer's job is to increase the quality of life on a residential property through the increase of security and reduction of crime. Drug use and sales decreases security, putting the lives of the tenants, and the property of the client, in danger. While getting a "big drug bust" is nice, the overall idea is to make it so unattractive to the bad guy to do business on or near the property that they pack up and move elsewhere - especially when the police cannot simply come on private property and roust the bad guys - they're not on public streets. BUT, the owner's agent CAN. With more latitude than a police officer.

    The job of a police officer is the enforcement of law, and protection of society. The job of a security officer, unless otherwise defined in contract, is protection of client, tenant, and visitor's safety, and the property of the client, and vicariously the property of the tenant.
