Sec. 2-5-90.   Private police.
   Any person desiring the services of a special police officer in or about his or her property or place of business, upon agreeing to defray all expenses of maintenance of such special police officers, upon application to the Board of Trustees, may have any suitable person named for special police officers duly appointed as such. Such special police officers shall take the usual oath of office and shall have the powers of a regular police officer in and upon the premises for which he or she may have been appointed, but not elsewhere. However, special police officers so appointed shall be under the control of the Chief of Police. The person at whose instance such officer was appointed shall be responsible for the expense of such officer, and the City shall in no case incur any liability whatsoever by reason of the appointment of such special police officers. No person appointed as a special police officer under the terms of this Section shall be considered a member of the Police Department.
