Detaining or Kidnapping


Detaining or Kidnapping

When utilizing handcuffs or any restraining device a Security Officer must be clear in their understanding of when and why a security officer can apply them.  While performing Private Security Officer duties within the state of Arizona we advise you read and follow the Arizona Revised Statutes listed below.  Remember this……. There is a fine line between detaining someone and kidnapping someone.  As we always say. “Don’t let yourself be put into the same car as the criminal”.  Understand the law and follow it.  When in doubt contact a lawyer.
