Since we're are strictly Access Control, they're trying to remove the "security" designation from everything there so as not to imply a security presence in the community (liability). In determining what we should be called, I suggested "gateboy."
    "Gate Attendant."

          On my site (an upscale community as well) they don't like the wore 'security' either so we are Community Patrol Officers. Most the time when we answer the phone we have to explain that yes we are security lol

            I'm LT right now, which is a Lead Officer (we conduct roll call, coordinate responses, approve OT, direct officers to certain calls, etc.).
            Liability is never above officer safety. Do what you must to make sure you go home safe.

                  University Security Officer 1, USO 2, Alternate Lead Officer, Lead Officer then the inumerable management titles. Rank markings/insignia are frowned upon and the students can't tell the difference between security and the university police-never mind whos who in security.

                    At my downtown 500 room hotel I am Assistant Director of Security but I also cover one of the three 8 hour shifts, usually alone.

                    At the other 2 hotels (280 & 222 rooms) I am the Assistant Director of Security. I'm on call overight for the lone Officer to call in case he needs help/advice.

                    I do the hiring, firing, training, payroll etc etc etc for all 3 hotels.

                    My boss works for the owner of the 3 hotels. His main job is NOT security, being Security Director is a part-time position.
                    I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

                        I'm currently an officer, and I plan on keeping it that way as long as I'm with this account. The Sgt's here only make a dollar an hour more and the Lt. make a buck and a half over that, but it's a 24/7 job for them. As long as this is the pay scale here I'll stick with officer.

                        Also I've noticed the Sgt's here only stick with the job a short time, once the "glamour" of having a few bars on their shirts wear off the reality sinks in that the money is practically the same and they have a lot more responsibility so off they go.

                          Right now we have the following:

                          Officer
                          FTO
                          Investigator
                          Supervisor
                          Manager
                          Director

                          I am currently an FTO.

                          In the fall when we do our budget, we will include budgeting for 2 new badges per employee and will be changing to a rank structure as follows:

                          Officer---------Officer
                          Investigator----Sergeant
                          FTO-----------Sergeant
                          Supervisor-----Lieutenant
                          Manager-------Captain
                          Director--------Chief
                          Apparently a HUGE cop wannabe...

                            Our company doesn't use a rank system. You have different pay scales and the higher the pay the higher in rank you are. It looks something like this-
                            Unarmed SO- Lowest paid/rank
                            Armed SO- Makes a little more than unarmed.
                            SO with special certification- SOs hired with particular skills such as medical, rescue, haz-mat, fire fighting, etc as needed by the client. Example, I'm a SO with EMT certification.
                            On Site Spervisor- the SO in charge of all the others at a particular clients site. He is the one who handles the schedules, sends in the time sheets to payroll, deals with the client regarding everyday operations, etc.

                                Just curious, why are you ex-law enforcement at 35? If you did 20 and out, you wouldn't be working 64-72 hours per week, your retirement would be helping you out...
