Member’s Incident Interview with Security Officer in Arizona


We had an opportunity to interview on of members, a Security Director for an Investment company based in Denver, Colorado, who is now on duty in Arizona overseeing investment properties for his employer.

The Security Officer, Marcial, assisted on an arrest when he called 911 to get officers to the location where a break-in had occurred. He was asked to assist, when officers arrived and was in turn being scrutinized for his help that led to the apprehension and arrest of one of the trespassers.

This real story is an eye-opener for the potential legal jeopardy one can find themselves in, when involved in a self-defense situation. The Sergeant in-charge, began to question our member regarding his use of force and even though a gun was not utilized, Marcial was defending himself and private property – the victim.
