(b) The port watchman is not a police officer, nor does he/she have any police powers of arrest. The port watchman's rights and powers are no more and no less than those of any U.S. citizen. The port watchman is subject to civil suit for false arrest or imprisonment under any circumstances if the security officer detains someone illegally. The port watchman's duty is to prevent rather than to apprehend. The port watchman is under a duty to notify law enforcement authorities of any criminal conduct they become aware of or observe.
