PART G

FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE MAKING AN ARREST

ARE SECURITY GUARDS REQUIRED TO MAKE ARRESTS?

At no time are you, as a security guard, obligated to make an arrest. You may be at the

scene when a violation occurs, but you do not have to make an arrest.

WHAT ARE YOU PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES?

Your first responsibility is prevention. After a crime has been committed, your

responsibility is to observe and report.

The purpose of this training is not to encourage you to make more arrests, but to teach

you the law concerning arrest, so you will know what you can and cannot do under the

law.

WHAT FACTORS SHOULD YOU CONSIDER?

In addition to the law, there are other important factors you should consider before

making an arrest. Here are a few:

1. PHYSICAL SIZE. Is the suspect bigger or stronger than you are? In better physical

condition? Younger?

2. WEAPONS. Is the suspect armed? Could he be carrying a concealed weapon?

3. ESCAPE. If you do not make an arrest at this moment, will the suspect get away?

Not just leave the scene - but get away completely? If you get a good description and

call the police WITHOUT DELAY, the police may be able to make the arrest.

4. TYPE OF OFFENSE. Is the offense major or minor? You should be more concerned

with major offenses. A person setting fire on a loading dock is a more likely candidate

for arrest than kids climbing a fence to steal apples from the client’s orchards.

5. RELATION TO YOUR JOB. Does the offense relate to property or persons you were

hired to protect? As a good citizen, you want to uphold the law, but your first duty is to

the client. After all, your employer is paying you!
