In June, Security Officer Christopher Mitchell was assigned to night watch at a natural gas facility in southern California when he was informed that two people climbed a perimeter fence. Mitchell located the two young adults and temporarily detained them.
While he had the two individuals in his custody, Mitchell was able to get identifying information, locate their car and direct them to delete a video they had recorded of the property. He then released the two, warning them that if they returned to the facility that they would be arrested.
Mitchell was alert, stern, and professional in his dealing with the pair of intruders.
