Elyria (Ohio) Auxiliary Police
"Elyria Police Department Auxiliary officers are not sworn police officers but they do support the department in the areas of patrol operations, special events and details. As the extra eyes, ears and feet of the Elyria Police Department, auxiliary officers are deployed to assist officers on patrol and during natural or man-made disasters; control traffic; monitor crowds at special city and school events and more. And while they perform other duties, their primary job is to observe and report.
Auxiliary officers don’t carry guns, but can carry batons, pepper spray, and hand cuffs. They have no powers of arrest other than citizen arrests, but they can be authorized by police officers to hand cuff when necessary. "
