    Private security and patrol is HUGE out in CA. When I was out in Sacramento a few years ago, I saw more private patrol vehicles than I did local PD or Sheriffs. The beautiful people and some businesses hire them to patrol their properties 24/7.

    Had an Alliance Security vehicle fly by me on the highway not more than 2 hours ago. Thing looked like a legit cruiser when behind you till flew by and you could make out the side of the car. Clear LED light bar and everything.

    Saw a marked and fully loaded black and gray Charger in Boston the other night. All done up with graphics etc. that said something along the lines of "Housing Patrol" with a big "clamshell" stye badge on the door. I didnt see the name of the company though.............

    In some areas of the U.S., particularly down south, gated communities are now patrolled by these guys even as local police departments and sheriffs are being cut back severely. The thing is in some areas even traffic enforcement in the gated private property is carried out by these people with property owners contracted to pay fines etc. for violations. Some are armed and respond to calls within the gates and function as private police. In the meantime people living outside the gates are open targets for bad guys because they have fewer cops. In other gated communities county sheriffs work paid details inside the gated communities but patrols are hard to found outside.

    SOX.... I saw these guys too! The clamshell reads "Special Police". Hilarious.

    I see that car about once a week around dinner time... I always want to go ask WTF, but change my mind when I start to consider how that conversation could go.

    It's better to trust your assumptions, the WTF situation is very self explanatory! LOL

    A Security company using the words "Special Police" could be charged criminally here in Canada...Security companies cannot use the words "Police" or "Enforcement" or "Officer" anywhere on the uniforms or vehicles...

    While some University Police Dept's in Ontario use the word "Police" on their vehicles/uniforms, the Provincial Government is said to prefer them to use the term "University Special Constable Service" on their vehicles/uniforms etc...

    Richie,

    That is US security services. They took over the Masshousing contract after Longwood lost it.

    Toronto Public Housing has it's own two-tiered Law Enforcement system..
    1)Housing Special Constables...A Peace Officer with all the same power as a Police Officer for all criminal, provincial and municipal by-law offences minus the firearm (they carry batons, OC spray)...
    2) Housing Provincial Offences Officers...An Officer with very limited Peace Officer status for issuing tickets/summonses for provincial trespass laws and municipal by-law offences...(they carry batons, NO OC spray)

    Both types of Officers are employees of the City housing authority and are not private security...

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    Canada seems to go out of its way to make things difficult, doesn't it!?!?!

    Indeed :)

    Take this one for instance...If prohibited waste is thrown on the curbside by the home owner, it's my (County) jurisdiction, it's thrown on the other side of the sidewalk closer to the house, it's the jurisdiction of my colleagues at the City...:teeth_smile:

    Sounds like the Boston vs. State Police arguments. In Boston all of the state land (Highways, Parks, buildings, etc.) fall on the State Police.

    You forgot to link their theme:

    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyV41-tFPcQ"]YouTube- Living In The U.S.A.-Steve Miller Band-1968[/nomedia]

    The "star guard" part is evidenced by the B5 organ...just listen.

    If I remember right, Boston Rule 400 states that you cannot have the words, "Boston", "Police" ect. on your uniform or vehicles...............

    Or, else you would have seen on that car,"Boston Special Police, Boston Housing Patrol".....................
