My husband is a courtesy officer at our coplex. He got rid of all the junkies and prostitutes. We have had our windows smashed and vehicals andalized. The worst was him loseing his security liscence because he massed someone trying to hit him and refuseing to leave. The man pressed charges to they too k his liscence,,all has been fine here till a week ago. dea showed up to do a big drug bust,,and he was in in courtesy officer shirt,,and the dea guy told the apartment manager,,long story short,,he knew my husband didnt have the liscence,,because of one of their residents. and we are now being evicted for that reason. Is this fair?

I don't know what a courtesy Officer is but if he was fired and is wearing a shirt that declares that he is an Officer of the Law then he could be arrested for impersonating a Police Officer. Talk to the Property Manager and see if they can work with you. Other than that good luck.


BTW be sure and post an introduction and read the TOU.

Apparently the agency which monitors security personnel suspended/revoked his security license due to a complaint. Actually I found the entire comment confusing. I find this interesting that this is your first post.

Contact an attorney and see if you have a civil case against the property management.......... or move on in your lives and get into a better situation.  That is about the best we can do as we are not allowed to advise you on civil matters........ fair or not.

He worked for a security company,and  the complex we live it gave us free rent for him patroling and monitering. He was fired from his job and had his liscence pulled because he mased a residents exhusband. The man turned and swung at him so he mased him. The man had several criminal tresspass against him,,because the wife had a restrining order aginst him. The man pressed charges aginst my husband and the are still pending. In the mean time he told the property manager his his liscense was pulled,,so they told him to be a courtesy officer. A couple of weeks ago DEA showed up for a hugh drug bust and he was there to help keep residents out of the way. His shirt says COURTESY on it only,,and thats on the back. DEA agent asked him where his liscense was, and he said he didnt have one,,it was suspended. Then the manager told us we had 2 weeks to leave,,because he has no liscence. Do you have to have a liscence if you are just partroling? Allhe has done is get people out of the pool and noise complaints. He dosent carry a gun.

Since no one can figure out what you are talking about I would sugget that you call a local attorney and explain it to him/her.  If you were wrongfully evicted that would be the route to go.  I can't imaging a DEA agent asking an individual if he has a license to be a security guard.  Was it your place that was raided?   You may want to work a bit on your spelling and grammer as well.

 Ok. I guess I will add my 2 cent on this..


I see that your husband was a security guard (officer) for a private company. I also understand that he was a "Courtesy Guard". I also see that you stated that he had a shirt that said Courtesy. 


I used to be a Security Officer. I have seen security people lose their licenses over all sorts of things. I am not sure of the specifics, but you stated that his license was pulled from him. You also stated that he maced someone for taking a swing at him. Has your husband had any type of training such as how and when to use mace or OC? Does he know that level of force continum? 


I think that the reason why he lost his Security license is because of the level of force that was used. Most Security companies do not like when their employees use "excessive force" when they are NOT on duty. It becomes a liability issue for the Security Officer (guard) and a bigger problem for the company. Also, it is not a wise decision to for a Security person to be doing something like that unless they have been hired for the job. Also, it is not wise to live at the same place where you do security type work. 


I know that mostLEO's sometimes do things like that, but they are better trained. 


I hope this helps..

He was on duty. I just wanted to know is it fair for him to get kicked out of the complex, for something a resident did.

Fair? Wow, even my kids know the answer to this one. To quote my 10 yoa daugher..."Life isn't fair. The fair is where you go to ride the Ferris Wheel and eat cotton candy."
