Cleveland MetroHealth System’s security operated as police without legal authority
From 2005 to 2010, the MetroHealth System's police department regularly arrested and detained people—even though it lacked the legal authority to do so. The health system calls its four dispatchers and nearly 60 state-trained peace officers and security guards "a full-service police department." But they are not police. The department lost its power to arrest and detain people when the city amended an ordinance granting that right in 2004.
