POWER TO ARREST TRAINING MANUAL

______________________________________________________________________________

(Revised 11/05)

9

�� If a suspect does not feel free to walk away because of a security guard’s statements

and actions, he may claim to have been under arrest.

�� A security guard should never touch a suspect except for self defense, or when

necessary to use reasonable force in effecting an arrest.

�� A security guard may search for WEAPONS ONLY and may search only when he has

cause to believe that the arrested person is armed.

�� A suspect MAY NOT be legally searched for weapons until he is actually arrested.

�� If contraband or stolen items are discovered while searching for weapons, those items

should be left on the suspect, unless there is a likelihood the suspect will dispose of them.

When the suspect is turned over to the peace officer, he should be notified of the

discovered items.

�� If a private citizen has made a lawful arrest, the peace officer by law MUST take

custody of the suspect.

�� The person/security guard who makes an arrest will be recorded as the arresting party.

5. Administer the final exam. Have trainees write their answers on the “Power to Arrest”

answer sheet. If they fail the first time, have them review the material again and correct

the answers they missed.

6. Have each applicant fill out an application for registration for employment as a security

guard or alarm agent. Sign on the “instructor’s signature” line.

7. The Bureau strongly recommends that the electronic on line application be used when

applying for a security guard registration.
