Should off-duty police officers be allowed to work security for bars and nightclubs?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 25, 2006
“Sure. If the place needs extra security, they should be able to hire a trained professional to handle it instead of someone who isn’t trained.”
“I think they should. I would think it would be an advantage to the establishment to have a police officer working security.”
“No, because they might feel like they have more authority than other people who are hired to do the same job.”
“I think they should. Just for the sake of the overall safety of the citizens of Lawrence.”
