Are security considered law enforcement?? I retained my lic for the prov. but only do volunteer work for special events and festivals. If you are just out in crowds etc, you are not allowed a weapon, not even a baton. Every event I attend it sems at least one injury ocurs. Here in winnipeg, we have had numerous armed car roberys, shots exchanged and some have hit there target. These armed guards are given little training for such events, such a broad daylight robbery at a crowded supermarket. They deserve more respect, and perhaps more training aswell as practice. I also feel men protecting humans should be allowed to arm themselves if men protecting money can.
