These amendments widened the scope of authority of Fire Police in Pennsylvania to have limited police powers. Although they have no authority to make arrests, they do have the right to detain someone, within reason.<quoted text>
You would think such illustrious people would obey the law too!
As in ''not permitted to persue'' not drive an ATV on a highway let alone ram a vehicle etc.!

''Traffic control. That's all they're there for is parking cars and handling traffic," said Mont Alto Fire Department President Charlie Baker about the role of fire police''
All Fire Police Officers are sworn officers of the law and when on duty shall display a badge of authority and shall be subject to control of the chief of police of the city, borough, town or township in which they are serving, or if none, of a member of the Pennsylvania State Police. Disobeying a Fire Police Officer is the same as disobeying a Police Officer, Sheriff's Deputy, State Constable or State Trooper and assaulting one is a felony.
