Can a security guard make an arrest?

We train our security guards thoroughly. They can and will make an arrest if necessary. They understand the extent of the legal rights present when making a citizen’s arrest. However, our guards are prohibited from using handcuffs or any kind of restraint. Due to this, our guards do not have any special devices available when making a citizen’s arrest.

When making an arrest caution is necessary. If a guard feels an arrest could compromise their personal safety, they reserve the right to call 911 instead of performing a citizen’s arrest. Once 911 is called, the guard will provide a detailed description of the situation and subject. The guard will also continue monitoring the suspect till a police officer arrives or as long as possible.
