Important Points to Remember…
A security guard/proprietary private security officer is NOT a peace officer.
A security guard/proprietary private security officer’s primary responsibility should be to protect the property or persons he or she is assigned to protect.
The main role of a security guard/proprietary private security officer should be PREVENTION.
If prevention is not possible, the role of a security guard/proprietary private security officer should be to OBSERVE and REPORT.

CRIMINAL LIABILITY refers to criminal penalties that can be imposed for a wrongful act. For example, carrying a loaded weapon concealed in your jacket is a violation of the Penal Code; the criminal penalty for the offense is a fine or jail sentence or both.
CIVIL LIABILITY refers to penalties arising from lawsuits that private persons bring against each other.
A security guard’s registration card does not allow the security guard to carry a weapon; the security guard must also have a valid exposed firearm permit and/or a baton certificate. It is ILLEGAL to carry a firearm without a firearm permit and a valid security guard registration. It is ILLEGAL to carry a baton without a baton permit and a valid security guard registration.
A proprietary private security officer’s registration card does not allow the proprietary private security officer to carry a weapon.
A firearm permit and/or a baton permit cannot be issued a PPSO registrant.

I have slow internet and/or frequent connection drops.
To fix this, just get a little closer. If the router is located in a different room, try going into the room where the router is located and see if that fixes the issue. If this is a consistent issue, try to position your router higher (up on a shelf), away from other devices, which can interfere with it, and in a central location in your home.
