There's no security feature. The glove box latch is broken. If you look at it from the underside of the latch, you can take a small screwdriver and manipulate the broken latch open. The latch will need to be replaced, they are usually readily in stock at most Cadillac dealers, and it only takes about 20 minutes and a couple of hand tools to replace it. I can provide instructions to do it, if you'd like.
