    Don't forget. Our job is not ALL crime prevention. Accident prevention is also part of it. Carts left blocking the emergency exit can become a safety hazard & therefore something we can take care of. Also things like picking up the room service trays in the hallway of the hotel so people don't trip over them. These duties I don't mind, delivering newspapers I do.
    Very good! It must be remembered that some bad guys place obstacles in strategic locations to block victims from escape.
    Two Deputy US Marshals were on a floor of a hotel when bad guys tried that trick. The two badies died on that floor!
    Enjoy the day,
    Bill

    It just seems to be the norm around here for the security to do extra duties, problem is it makes it hell for the next guy who comes in who rightly believes he is there for security reasons only.

    I can definately say there have been sites I have worked graveyard where I was just so bored off my arse I would have loved to have had a mop or something just to kill off a couple hours. Only problem is that the co. we guard uses a private contract company for janitorial services so that would likely end up being a big contract issue. Oh well.

    Yeah, I'm alive Nathan.

    Between extra shifts, annual recert training classes, meetings, and personal life responsibilities I've not been keeping up.

    Things are easing up, most of our recert classes are finished and now all I have to get ready for is the holiday rush.

    Can't be rid of me that easily.

    Just this little statement in the contract sets you and your officers up for anything:

    ...... and other duties, which may be necessary during shift

    We did put our feet down on one point. They wanted us to put the papers in plastic bags & hang them on the door handles. I worked an overnight shift the week they asked us to do it. It took over an hour just to put them in the bags. Then they would slip off of the Bellboy cart as we were delivering them. We refused to use the bags. Management didn't say anything else

    We handle the newspapers here as a value added service too. Fortunately, we don't have as many as you.

    In French we are known as SERVICE de la Sécurité not Département de la sécurité.

    I could never do Hotel security I don't have a good customer service attitude. I'm all about making people happy, but when my efforts are abused or taken for granted (eg become expected) I can't handle it. I'm not a butler.
