  2. To detain an individual when a misdemeanor breach of the peace or felony has been committed and the employee has probable cause to believe that the person being detained has committed it; or
  3. When an employee makes a citizen’s arrest and is delivering that person to a public officer competent to receive him or her into custody; or
  4. To prevent a malicious trespass; or
  5. To prevent a malicious interference with real or personal property.

When an employee is required to use force, he or she should immediately contact Campus Security.
