Private police

Reminderville fired its police force and replaced the police officers with private security guards who patrolled the town in blue "police-like" uniforms armed with 9mm semi-automatic weapons, radios, batons, and handcuffs. The contract with Corporate Security Inc. allowed Reminderville to cut its policing expenses from $180,000 to $90,000 per year, while increasing the number of patrol cars in the area and improving emergency response time from 45 minutes to six minutes.While the security officers had power to make a citizen's arrest, Reminderville did not grant them power to question, detain, or search suspects without risking a lawsuit. The arrangement ended due to pressures from public police organizations and complaints by residents that the security personnel were not adequately enforcing the laws.
