  • Resort Security

    I am about to start a job doing resort security. This will involve doing patrols, crowd control as well as emergency respose. The area which we cover is 107 square km (66 square miles) including six hotels, camp ground, airport, staff village of 1200 and a small shopping complex. As well as local P.D, F.D and hospital.

    Before this I was a private avation screener. This is the only security experence I have as I am only 23.

    Has anyone done a job like this before? If so what advise can you give me?

    If anyone wants anymore info on the place you can check it out here:

    Thanks again

    Welcome to the forum. That sounds like quite an undertaking. How big is your department. I hope you will not be alone on your shift with a property that large. I also hope you have a vehicle of some sort for patrols and response.

      It should be a department of 10. But they are short staffed at the moment so I will be the 7th security officer. We have Toyota Landcrusers to do patrols. I will be with someone for at least the first 3 months while my interstate licence gets trasfered over.

      Thanks

        10! 10! Wow. I must really be spoiled. My hospital department has 140+ officers covering 3 shifts. It is a big campus but not as big as yours but we also have something like 40000 people on campus durring the day.

          Hi, welcome.

          Since it has it's own police & fire departments , what emergencies does security handle?

                    Noise complaints! There is something we have in common. My 500 room hotel averages about 60 to 75 per month. (And these are only the ones that the guests call in during the middle of the night, not the complaints made at the front desk when they are checking out).

                      Ya know I checked this Resort out via Google Earth and even though G.E. isn't as up to date as I would like, or NSA would allow, it seems pretty dang nice.

                      But... I tell you what, I thought I've worked some places that were in B F E err BF A

                      What preplans do you have for ill or guests who've become injured? How long does it take to fly some out of the out back? What if the SHTF, how far away are the police? Having read another post one of your fellow Aussies, given the seemingly remoteness of the place how much problems would the local police give you for carrying a knife or two???

                      BTW, it is beautiful...

                        Do like the Police do and drive by 3 hours later and say you didn't hear anything (from the road driving by with your windows up). Our Police NEVER do anything about noise, but a Hotel may not have that luxury as a business. But don't you call the Police as a last resort?

                          We used to work on the 3 strikes & you our out system. We'd call the police to help us evict if we needed them. About 3 years ago the lawyers for the police decided that an hotel room is a person's temporary home. The charter of rights & freedoms does not allow someone to be evicted from their home without getting a judgement from a court. Now we work with our hands tied. As most out of towners do not know the law, if they are disturbing other guests continuously we will still try to make them leave. One of my Night staff still calls the police to help & so far all the ones that have responed have helped him. The problem calling the police in a majpr dpwntown area is that a noise complaint in an hotel is very low on their prioriety of calls. My night guy called last week. It took the police 80 minutes to arrive. (I had my scanner on they were busy with fights, including one with officers in trouble). In those 80 minutes that guests that were being disturbed continued to be disturbed.

                            That sux when obnoxious people can bother innocent people at will. You might want to investigate Ultrasonics (or dog repellers) that will make them very uncomfortable with loud sounds, cotton blend clothes/sheets, and/or large metal objects: near wall boundaries especially. Its perfectly legal, quiet, and very effective. Effects range from hyper heart rates, nausea, and/or muscle cramps. A (up to 140db soundless energy) tool for about $350 per device (plus shipping) which would be invaluable for such occasions as noise offenders They won't know what hit them.

                              In another post somewhere some mentioned this type of device being used on cruise ships to defend from pirates. My worry is that Canada. like most Commonwealth nations seem to outlaw any new personal defense technology as soon as it comes out
