This is a great example of how things should happen -- security and police working together seamlessly. As we all know, police can't be everywhere all the time. Many times they have to depend on those on the front lines -- security officers -- to get the ball rolling on tasks such as detaining a suspect and gather evidence. Thankfully, there are many talented security professionals out there willing to step up. -- IFPO.
