This SECURITY company tried to pull me over on a public roadway, Violating California Law! The company also fails to comply with CA law in that their patches do not state the words "Private Security" Read this: BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE 7582.26 (f) No private patrol licensee or officer, director, partner, manager, or employee of a private patrol licensee shall use or wear a badge, except while engaged in guard or patrol work and while wearing a distinctive uniform. A private patrol licensee or officer, director, partner, manager, or employee of a private patrol licensee wearing a distinctive uniform shall wear a patch on each shoulder of his or her uniform that reads "private security" and that includes the name of the private patrol company by which the person is employed or for which the person is a representative and a badge or cloth patch on the upper left breast of the uniform. All patches and badges worn on a distinctive uniform shall be of a standard design approved by the director and shall be clearly visible. The director may assess a fine of two hundred fifty dollars ($250) per violation of this subdivision. BEWARE!

I used to work for this company some years ago. After only a couple of months I decided to quit due to the fact that their guards and management were making some very poor decisions. I never knew if I was going to get paid working there because paychecks would bounce on a regular basis. I saw many times their guards instigate fights and make bad arrest. On 4-27-2008 one of their guards was arrested after being involved in a hit and run and later a high speed chase with the San Diego Police Dept which ended in a pretty serious crash that injured a perfectly innocent person. Buyer Beware, if you hire National Public Safety for your security services you will be incurring much more liability than without them at all. NPS may be the "lowest bidder" but you will get what you pay for.
