Just in the past week, a uniformed security officer was murdered in Akron, OH while providing security services for a business. On Tuesday night in Cincinnati, my employee was assaulted by a drug dealer in Cincinnati. My company is Official Investigations & Security Services, Inc. That same night, two armed security officers employed by PLS Protective Services in Cincinnati, OH were shot at in Cincinnati.
The defendant in that case was given a $20,000 bond on 2 counts of felonious assault versus a robbery suspect that pointed a gun at a Hamilton County Deputy Sheriff but did not fire a shot received a $2,000,000 bond.
It is time to increase the penalty for assault on a security officer in the State of Ohio to match the penalty included in 2903.13 (5) and 2903.11 (D)(1)(a & b) which protects peace officers, firefighters and EMS personnel.
Furthermore, it is time to increase the penalty for attempting to or disarming an armed security officer, under 2911.01 (B)(1)(2).
Currently the States of Texas, Florida, California, Washington state, North Carolina (enhanced misdemeanor or felony), Virginia (School Security officers), and several other states increase the penalty for assault on a security officer to a felony offense.
