Lets see, a state officer who would have no jurisdiction in international waters and of course the biggies...another tax and more government regulation.

Another way to tax us…can someone tell me how I can get a job as a peace officer? I'll even do it for free!

That's $1 a day per passenger. So let's see.. the Emerald Princess holds 3,080 passengers at double occupancy. $3,080 x 7 day cruise = $21,560. So how many officers would they put on the Emerald? Four? That would be $5,390 an officer. Hmmmmmm.

I also note the use of "peace officer" as opposed to "police officer". A peace officer can be a sworn officer, but also can be someone with no arrest powers. I guess it depends on California's definition. What point is there in having this person (or persons) aboard a ship when they have no more power than any other passenger once the ship is in international waters? So they can play Mr. Monk and annoy the passengers? Federal agents have some authority because of treaties and revisions to maritime law. I'm not sure that includes state or local level officers.

BTW - trivia question on the powers of police. Who has the most authority? Federal officers, state officers, county officers, or city officers?

I'll have to go with state, but not sure. I try not to make any of them mad.

Actually, the smaller the jurisdiction the more power. There are exceptions - such as when an arrest warrant is issued - but generally a federal officer only has the power to enforce federal law, state officer state laws, etc. So the answer is a city police officer. A city cop can enforce federal, state, county, and city laws and ordinances. A federal officer cannot enforce a city code for Athens, Alabama, but the Athens police officer can arrest someone for violating a federal law.

A friend and former co-worker of mine told me this. He was a police officer for the city of Florence, Alabama, for many years.

An exception for Alabama also allows TVA Police to enforce Alabama laws, even though TVA Police are federal officers. This has much to do with the vague lines of jurisdiction because of TVA property in the state. So to make it easy the state has essentially deputized any TVA police officer. At least that is my understanding of it. I assume this holds true in other states where TVA exists, such as Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Georgia.

There were some DNR officers in Northern Michigan that were really terrors to people on snowmobiles. Like they had to prove they had authority!
