    General: Carry extra batteries for your flashlight. Keep a pair of spare socks. Pack extra snacks - if someone calls off, your 8 hr. shift might become 12 hrs. Make sure your uniform is clean, in good shape and properly worn - it not only presents a better image, but the day you're wearing old sneakers and your neon red t-shirt under under your white uniform shirt, the VP of the company will show up.

    Tactical: I check stairwells top down - if I find someone I have the high ground. 60/40 stance is your friend - learn it. Write up lights out - dark spaces attract rats - 4 legged and 2 legged. Keep your area clean - bottles, 2x4s and bricks can all become weapons in the hands of suspects.

    Career: every job is training for the next job - even if you are just there as an insurance break, you can still bring value to the client and your employer. You always want your last employer to say, "Did a great job, sorry to lose him / her." And do a good job for the rest of us - we fight against stereotypes daily.
