I would recommend that you follow any advice given to you by a sworn peace
officer who has constitutional authority and power of arrest. Privately
hired "security" personnel do not have any such authority and compliance or
non-compliance is at your discretion. They are not allowed to harass or
threaten you and you have the option of reporting them to the local
authorities and I recommend that you do that.
