    +2 I agree.

    Some things money can buy, for everything else, there's the Sheriff's Office!
    I know for one thing, the other day I went to go buy a new leather 1 3/4 leather garrison belt form my uniform, and it set me back $20 stinkin dollars. - I had/have to buy all my own uniform for the sheriff's office, and it aint cheap! Reimbursments are only quarterly! It PMO that these people who impersonate police have so much money to throw around! If they get prosecuted the judge should donate their duty belts to the reserve/auxiliary! I try my best to stay out of the uniform store. The uniform store breaks me. And we only get reimbursed if we buy our uniforms and gear from the authorized uniform stores. So if I buy gear/uniform online, or in a catalog, no reimbursment! So, my point is, when impersonaters get prosecuted, they should donate their "duty-belts" to us!

    Apologize RDEP typing on pain killers worse than texting while drinking. Have had LOTS of problems with TSA personnel going through security check points in county buildings. Wonder if they would think it "cute" to say some of they things some of them have stated while going through airport security, or jumping the line for that matter.

    I just have to ask. You've been in the Navy, and used to work security, etc... and you're only 20. How long is a Navy enlistment in Finland? Or were you involuntarily separated?

    when i tell him that i'm gonna write him a ticket for excessive speed and for his 3 small children who are not restrained (one is a newborn baby) he gets upset and tells me that he donates money to "us" all the time. (i'm a state trooper, and i find a FOP sticker on his windshield fron 1998! he then starts complaing that its messed up that i'm writing him a ticket when he is a police officer, just like me. his terrible attitude makes me VERY suspicious...i run his CH and find he has been arrested about a dozen times for a wide variety of offenses. i run warrants on him and dispatch notifies me that he has 6 active warrants out of various departments in north louisiana!

    when i brought this big fella (6'2'' 240) into the parish jail, all the corrections deputys start snickering. apparently they all know him and one said it made their day watching me bring him in in his "police" uniform.
    So was this guy even a security guard? I mean how could he be if he had warrants?

    I just have to wonder that like 10 or 20 years ago did people pull this impersonator **** or is this something that has started lately?

    Because my uniform is very "cop like" in appearance, I also try to at least wear my civilian jacket over it if I go into stores on the way to/from work - to avoid some of the aforementioned situations like being mistaken for a cop or store security if an incident happens while I'm shopping.

    I did get pulled over on the way to work a few weeks back, while wearing the uniform, but didn't use it to attempt to get any type of favor or anything - the cop did notice it and asked where I worked, then recognised me as I've helped him out a few times with bringing combative patients into the ER etc - as it was he didn't give me a ticket, most likely because I wasn't speeding that much (52 in a 45), have a completely clean driving record, and was very polite and apologetic. Suffice to say I have watched my speed more carefully since then!
    This is great! There should be more security that would want to act this way but because most companies don't give a damn and because the training is quite inadequate everything can happen. The security companies should also be little more careful who they hire. Too many wannabes out there (wonder where do they come from).

    Not a big deal.
    Come on, I'm just saying that he could get in a dangerous situation when he is bying the coffee in his uniform in a store he doesen't even guard and robbers hit there at the same time. Now the robbers would immidiately think that he is a security guard for that store and if they never seen a guard in that store they could panick or then they could mistaken him as a police officer and shoot him. But if he would wear plain clothes then there maybe wouldn't be any problem.

    This is my opinion only and of course the guard can do what he wants (well except here in Finland I was told not to wear the uniform on my way to work if I use public transportation).

    Everyone has a badge now-a-days. Even the dreadful TSA. I don't think this is much of an issue.
