Private police carry guns and make arrests, and their ranks are swelling…

Michael Youlen stopped a driver in a Manassas apartment complex on a recent night and wrote the man a ticket for driving on a suspended license. With a badge on his chest and a gun on his hip, Youlen gave the driver a stern warning to stay off the road.

The stop was routine police work, except for one fact: Youlen is not a Manassas officer. The citation came courtesy of the private force he created that, until recently, he called the “Manassas Junction Police Department.”

He is its chief and sole officer.

He is a force of one.

And he is not alone. Like more and more Virginians, Youlen gained his police powers using a little-known provision of state law that allows private citizens to petition the courts for the authority to carry a gun, display a badge and make arrests. The number of “special conservators of the peace” — or SCOPs, as they are known — has doubled in Virginia over the past decade to roughly 750, according to state records.


Recruit training continues…

With initial recruit application totaling 44, there are now 20 active recruits; 6 are on excused absences for Saturday, January 31st (26); 6 are on suspension pending the training session on Saturday, February 7th (32). The training sessions are arduous both physically and academically…but with a determination to reach that 300 hour certificate only the committed will achieve it…

Patrolling the Neighborhood…

The Chicago Police Bike Unit patrolling the Marquette Park neighborhood last Thursday stopped by briefly at the Illinois Police Reserves (IPR) Headquarters at 2735 West 71st Street. The securing of alleys and gangways between buildings is a smart tool for the Chicago Police and any security service that patrols neighborhoods.
