On State Law Enforcement Officers

Except as specified in this document, only duly appointed law enforcement agents of the state can cite, arrest, or detain people on property not privately owned.

When not operating under cover for the purposes of investigation, state law enforcement officers must wear a distinctive and easily identifiable uniform, and their vehicles must bear distinctive markings.   These uniforms and markings are to be specified by law, and no one is permitted to emulate the appearance of a law enforcement officer or his vehicle without the express permission of the body of state law enforcement which displays that appearance.

No one who has been convicted of a serious, biological, or destructive crime can act as a law enforcement officer or as a private security guard.

In enforcing law, an officer is required at all times to use the minimum and least injurious technique available to him sufficient to neutralize a situation.
