I have a problem with ERMC applying improper enforcement or selective enforcement of detainments and arrests. I was wondering if I have been the only one who cares about this practice?

As a corporal with ERMC security at a local mall, I can tell you that the law in NC does not grant arrest powers to security personnel. Even if it did, ERMC would not. In fact, security training with ERMC is minimal. Any training an officer wants has to be arranged and paid for by him or herself. That's because A) ERMC is a cheap contract company, B) ERMC is run by penny-pinchers who care only about lining their own pockets, and C) ERMC is very, VERY new to the security industry.

Former ERMC Officer in Orlando, Florida

As a former ERMC officer in the Southeast Tennessee area I agree with James that even if it was "lawful" for security officers to "make arrests" ERMC still most likely wouldn't. At the mall I worked at we always used the local police officers who were working off-duty overtime to handle any arrests or detainments that were needed. Even if a customer was being banned from the property a local law enforcement officer had to co-sign the paperwork with a security representative. It's possible that R. Parker might have been refering to the YEP (Youth Escort Policy Enforcement). At the mall I worked at youth were not "escorted" to the security office as some other posters have stated. Rather we dealt with the issue right out in front of the other guests (i.e. with plenty of witnesses and camera coverage).

The Security at Eastland Mall has gone totally laxed. I was there the other day and observed a Security Officer wearing a Dirty Chicago Bulls Baseball Hat and the Supervisor wasn't wearing a hat at all!! I was there for about 4 hours putting in applications and only seen each Officer only once. I also observed a theft at Store and when the Manager called Security noone came for at least a 1/2 hours while I was talking with the Manager about an application.

I don't know what's happening to some officers, in the security industry, It's just not what it used to be what ever happened to Integrity. You just keep being the Professional that you are and Pray and I'm sure you get the job you are looking for.
Believe it or not there are still Officers such as myself who take pride bin their work and still care. Hang in there
