What is the legal definition of "prevention" of laws being broken in NC, As regards to security officers?
You're going to have to be more specific and provide some context. Different words can be defined differently in different statutes, but in this case there probably isn't a "legal" definition of "prevention."
We need more information. If you want a generalized legal definition, you can look it up in Black's Law Dictionary. However, if you want an analysis of the word, we need to know the context and the statutes that you are referencing. Best of luck!
