Merchant guard or merchant patrol shall mean any person who conducts or is engaged in the business of providing protection to persons and property, or preserving the peace in the conduct of any business, except a business or industrial guard.
A badge is not required to be worn with the merchant guard uniform. If a company decides to use a badge with their uniform, the company must ensure that the words "Police or Officer" do not appear on the badge or any other part of the uniform or equipment.
