    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A company police officer commissioned under Chapter 74E is considered a "public officer" within the meaning of N.C.G.S. 14-223. This means that they have the authority and responsibilities of a public officer, and it is a crime to resist their lawful commands or actions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The company police officer is not considered an "officer of the state" for the purposes of N.C.G.S. 14-33(C) (4). Therefore, it would not be classified as a Class A1 misdemeanor to assault a company police officer.

    Rate this question:

  • 3.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A company police officer is authorized to use blue lights and sirens on motor vehicles used by them in the performance of their duties. This is because company police officers are often tasked with enforcing laws and maintaining public safety on private property. The use of blue lights and sirens can help them quickly respond to emergencies, deter criminal activity, and ensure the safety of individuals on the premises.

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A company police officer is authorized to make an arrest on the real property specified by N.C.G.S. § 74E-6. Therefore, it is logical to assume that if an arrest is made, the company police officer would also have the authority to transport the arrestee from the premises to a magistrate to obtain a warrant.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Company police officers do not have the authority to make arrests and charge for infractions on property rented by their employer. The jurisdiction of company police officers is limited to the property owned or controlled by their employer. They do not have the same authority as public law enforcement officers and their powers are restricted to the premises of the company they work for. Therefore, they cannot make arrests or charge for infractions on rented properties.

    Rate this question:

  • 12.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A company police officer does not have jurisdiction off the premises of their employer, even if their assistance is required by a state, county, or municipal law enforcement officer. Company police officers are typically only authorized to enforce laws and maintain security within the boundaries of their employer's property. Off the premises, their authority is limited and they do not have the same powers as law enforcement officers. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    MAY ALL COMPANY POLICE AGENCIES ENTER INTO MUTUAL AID AGREEMENTS TO EXPAND THE TERRITORIAL JURISDICTION OF THEIR OFFICERS?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not feasible or practical for all company police agencies to enter into mutual aid agreements to expand the territorial jurisdiction of their officers. Company police agencies are typically private security forces employed by specific companies or organizations, and their jurisdiction is limited to the property or premises of the company they serve. Mutual aid agreements are typically made between different law enforcement agencies, such as local police departments or sheriff's offices, to provide assistance and support in emergency situations or when additional resources are needed. Therefore, it is not possible or necessary for all company police agencies to enter into such agreements.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A company police officer may arrest with a warrant on their employer's premises.

As police officers, they have the power to enforce laws and maintain public safety, regardless of the specific location. Therefore, they can enforce state wildlife laws on the premises of their employer.
