    For a security guard, cuffs or baton should be used with extreme caution.
    If you witness a felony, you could subdue the offender for the police, using the minimum necessary amount of force. But it would have to be a crime the police would agree was a crime. Refusal to upgrade your IAS status would not count.

    Use of a baton would only be OK if needed to defend yourself against violent attack.

    I'm not a lawyer, nor do I portray one on TV, so I do not guarantee that you would not still get into trouble.

    The thing I really regard as crazy, is that use of force by a security guard would open up the church to lawsuit from the person assaulted/restrained by the guard.

    Great posts Mest Lover. Very interesting to see how communications were handled. That's a hell of a lot of acronyms.
