Arrest means to charge with a crime, and either cite and release or process into jail.
Detain means to stop.
Detain and interview is to stop and ask questions. This is usually were Miranda Rights are given.

Ok, well there's not a lot of details that can be backed up in that piece (intentionally?)
but it is all written out in the training manual: California BSIS... pg 13 if you care to read that far.
security guard/proprietary private security officer’s AUTHORITY to make a citizen’s arrest. (Penal Code §841)
In the uk anyone can make a citizen’s arrest...if the villain allows it! I can say "I am arresting you bla bla" but I cant lay a single finger on them. Is it the same where you are?
Last summer, residents of Maywood, Calif., woke up one morning to find the government as they knew it gone. After years of corruption and mismanagement, the small, blue-collar city south of Los Angeles fired almost all of its employees, dismantled its police department and contracted with a neighboring city to take over most municipal tasks. On July 1, local officials announced that Maywood had become the country’s first city to be fully outsourced.
It may also mean
government outsourcing of services or functions to private firms, e.g. revenue collection, law enforcement, and prison management.

Well OP... You align with the political party that constantly pushes to privatize government function, like the political system (Citizens United), public utilities, our prison system and security/police.
Privatizing to Save Money and Time Various governments -- from small towns all the way up to federal agencies -- have been sending public services to the private sector since the 1980s. The trend stems from the common belief that private companies can help governments save or make money by doing jobs faster and cheaper, or managing a public asset more efficiently.
The Effects of Inefficient Outsourcing
No industry has gone through greater outsourcing catastrophes in the past year than government IT. Last fall, Texas cut short its seven-year contract with IBM, an $863 million deal that called for IBM to provide data center and disaster recovery services for 27 state agencies. When an audit criticized the state’s Department of Information Resources for lax oversight, inadequate staffing and sloppy service, the partnership fell apart. In Virginia, the state’s 10-year, $2.3 billion IT contract with Northrop Grumman to run the state’s computers, servers, e-mail systems and help desk services also has been plagued by inadequate planning, cost overruns and poor service.
