Hey, I'm a security guard who recently did certificate two and three in security to get my licence. During the course, I was taught that the only two times security can search a person or their belongings is if they have the person's consent or after an arrest and they believe the person is armed. However, I was never told what law actually states that these are the only two times a security guard can search someone. I have tried searching the web and the crimes act 1958, yet I have not been able to find anything relating to this topic. If someone could tell me what act and section under Australian Law covers this, it would be really appreciated. Thanks.
