Remember.... All newer elevators can be remotely controlled so keep that in mind before they lock you in an elevator until the police arrive.
That was true even 30 years ago.
When I was in college, I worked as a security guard and as a prank, when another guard was doing rounds in a building, we would lock lock them in stairwells and/or elevators.
I got burned once with that and got out through a fire escape and tripped the fire alarm in the process. Before we could even get through to the fire dispatcher, fire trucks were arriving at the building. After that, I made myself a superuser on the building management server and basically gave myself full-authority override capability. Problem solved.
