What authority do Company Police Officer’s possess?

Company Police Officers’ authority derives from NCGS 74E.

Company police officers patrol and enforce the criminal laws of our state on private and public school property, county and state hospitals, shopping centers, apartment complexes, office buildings, golf courses, recreational lakes and train stations.

Company police agencies are a vital part of the criminal justice system’s efforts in this state. Company police agencies supplement our state, municipal and county police agencies thereby relieving them of some of the calls-for-service that burden all law enforcement agencies.
