Are Elite Police Officers the "Real Police?"
Yes. Elite Police Officers can make arrests for misdemeanors, felonies and
issue citations for infractions, and make arrests the same as any police officer in the State
of North Carolina. If a criminal runs off the property, can you chase him? As long as the incident started within our jurisdiction, and we are in
immediate and continuous pursuit, we can pursue up to the state
line. Our Officers can conduct investigations, issue citations or make arrests as needed, just
as any other police officer may do. Can Elite Police work for my city, town, state, or other governmental entity? Yes,
we can work for any federal, state, town, city,
housing authority, lake authority, water and sewer authority in the State of North Carolina. We are authorized to work on real property owned by or in the
possession and control of governmental entities. Examples would be: town hall, town parks, government owned buildings,
public housing communities, hospitals, and similar areas.
Where does Elite Police Special Police get their authority from? The North
Carolina Attorney General, under Chapter
74E of the North Carolina General Statutes, authorizes the Company Police Program and
certifies Special Police Agencies and Officers. Elite Police is authorized to be a
Special Police Agency through this program and all of our Police
Officers are certified by this program.
Do Elite Police Officers carry guns and other weapons? Yes.
All Elite Police officers carry sidearms during the
performance of their duties. Depending on the assignment, they may carry
them openly while in uniform, or concealed when in plain
clothes. Our officers also carry OC ("pepper") spray, impact weapons, shotguns and rifles.
All Elite Police Officers train regularly in firearms and
defensive tactics as taught by state certified instructors.
Does Elite Police have blue lights and sirens on their cars? Yes. Elite Police Officers drive marked and unmarked patrol cars.
We use blue lights, sirens, mobile data terminals and have prisoner partitions.
Where in North Carolina does Elite Police work? We
are currently based in Charlotte and work in the surrounding counties, and we travel through out the state as assignments may require.
Are Elite Police Officer the same as Security Guards? No. Elite Police Officers are State certified Police Officers and who go through State mandated in-service training, and have power to make arrests. Security guards are not required to have this training, nor
do they have arrest powers.
Is it better to hire Elite Police rather than Off Duty Police Officers? The advantage of hiring Elite Police rather than off duty officers is liability and superior personal service. We carry our own workman's
compensation, liability and automobile insurance.
When you hire off-duty officers from a police department, you are
liable for any claims made due to the actions of
the officer you are employing. Your concerns are our primary concerns.
Do Elite Police Officers go through a tough hiring process? YES! We
have a thorough background check that goes beyond what is required
by either the State of North Carolina or many public agencies. After we
are satisfied with an applicant, the State's Company Police
Administrator does another background check and certification process. Only after the Administrator and Chief Reccardi are satisfied, may an Elite Police Officer be sworn in and hired. Are Elite Police Officers professionally trained? Absolutely, every year Elite Police Officers are required to take state mandated training. This training is taught by Certified North Carolina State Instructors.
