PART A (contd.)

AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY

WHAT IS A SECURITY GUARD’S JOB?

A security guard is assigned to protect specific people and property. This may include

detecting some of the same offenses that would cause a peace officer to act, such as a

fight or burglary. But it would not include other offenses such as motor vehicle traffic

violations or prostitution.

For example, if you were on duty at a plant gate and you observed two teenagers having

an auto race down a public road, you would not try to arrest them. You may decide to

report it to the police if a telephone is nearby. But you were hired to protect the plant -

not to arrest speeders.

(In fact, you should be suspicious of any activity that may draw you away from your

post. It could be a plan to draw your attention away from your duties.)

WHAT IS A PEACE OFFICER'S JOB?

Peace officers are law enforcement officers such as Sheriffs and their Deputies,

Constables, Marshals, members of city police forces and other officers whose duty is to

enforce the law and preserve the public peace. If a law is violated, peace officers are

required to pursue and apprehend the person responsible. This is not required of a

security guard!

REMEMBER, a peace officer’s responsibilities are different from a security guard’s

responsibilities.

�� SECURITY GUARDS only protect specific people and property.

�� POLICE (PEACE OFFICERS) protect all people and all property and enforce laws.
