Booker said that special police officers, such as Shariff, receive training from the city and often work at churches and local businesses. Their uniforms are similar to those of regular police officers, but they are not police officers.
In New Jersey there is a recognized position known as the Special Officer. Special Officers are often utilized in beach communities as seasonal police officers. They have less training than regular officers but do possess certain police powers. The position can actually be broken down into two sub-parts. First, there is the Special Officer Class I. The Class I Special Officer goes through several weeks of training (depending on the structure of the training schedule) and is trained in motor vehicle laws, first aid, criminal law, use of force and other basic areas. He or she will generally be utilized for parking and traffic enforcement or to supplement a police presence in a certain area. Class I Special Officers do not carry firearms and have limited law enforcement powers.
There is also the Special Officer Class II. The Class II Special Officer goes through several months of training, usually at night, and is given all of the training listed above plus much of the training given to a regular police officer including firearms training. The Special Officer Class II has full police powers but only while on duty.

Yes what is that indeed.
That is almost the bigger story here.
Is Hailiburton or Blackwater leasing out cops for hire?
DD I trust that you are on the case.

This is not simply up to the police department, the society (state) failed to maintain the proper police, which is now using rope and cardboard to "pretend" it's doing the job assigned.
The society is in crisis and it is a serious thing, citizen's complaints are not going to change anything. The whole society needs to be re-calibrated properly, and that may be impossible because there are too many incompetent people on key positions.
