MTT TL, I'm really not trying to be a pain, but your last post goes back to security vs law. Or at least it went there.
Security personnel must follow their orders and regulations.
Having worked in a security department, my experience was that security personnel, after detaining a suspect, will refer any probable criminal act to an actual LE type agency. This might be NCIS, FBI, Secret Service, etc depending on the nature of the offense.
Security departments usually have nothing to do with follow-on to detention in a criminal case.
And my ex-wife used to get very annoyed that I'd routinely try to corral the more belligerent drunks when we were out and about; I fully understand that commissioned officers and NCOs are never really off-duty. She hated that I was the buzz-kill in the group; unfortunately I was often the senior officer present.
