    In South Carolina, security guards have the same powers as a Deputy Sheriff on the property they are employed to protect. It is a state law and there are no training standards required.

      Actually, private security forces employed by the resort (as opposed to rented security guards from a service) have MORE authority on their private property (for some misdemeanor or civil violations) than the police do - meaning, for example in the case of a business dispute or unwanted visitor, the police must be requested to intervein by the property before they can act. and then must leave if requested to do so.

      Private security has the authority to make a citizens arrest (depending upon state law) or to forcefully remove anyone they choose without having reason to do so. The police must have a violation of criminal law to do this - like tresspassing, etc.

      As to traffic radar, they wouldn't have authority to issue a court summons, but could fine or discipline employees or order visitors to leave if their driving was reckless - police cannot do this nor, can they issue court summons on private roadways not dedicated to public use
      You're response is nation wide as well as others here, you work security off the job you're a agent for the owner and I can't see a private patrol car with a radar unit unless it came with the used police car, no court would hold a traffic violation given by a security guard!
      SORRY!!
      Take care and stay safe!
