    I'm the Lead Officer on graves in our Patrol/Alarm Response division.

    *scheduled patrol checks
    *City Parks contracts (open, closing, and patrolling)
    *residential communities (noise complaints, lockout service, trespassers, parking enforcement in their area)
    *armed escort service for client employees late at night
    *commercial and residential burglar alarms for ADT and several other monitors
    *low income housing area patrol and lock out service
    Liability is never above officer safety. Do what you must to make sure you go home safe.

    I may be gay, but I'll eff you up!

              University security at a bastion of liberal anti-american rhetoric. 80 odd cops, 120 or so security officers, another 60 security in small university kingdoms desperately fighting off being absorbed............ahhhhhhhhhhh paradise!

                Been doing hotel security since 1977.

                I cover the 3pm to 11pm shift usually alone at a 500 room downtown Montreal hotel. (I do the regular security duties).

                I am also the Assistant Director for this & 2 smaller side-by-side hotels out by the airport.

                My boss works directly for the owner of the 3 hotels & has many other duties so most of the management of security at the hotels is up to me. A good thing however is that it is my boss who has to deal with the 3 General Managers, Vice President of hotel operations & owner, not me
                I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

                  I've been involved in the security industry for 11 years, including 4 as an LPO. Since 01 December I'm a security guard in a grocery store, but - but - my job is the deterrence of theives. I do that not by walking around like a sign with legs, but by active deterrence; I walk up to and talk with thieves if I can (embarrassing or outright humiliating them if necessary), if I can't I make my presence very well known by making eye contact and by exaggerating my looking at their bags, or pockets, or whatever they have with them, or some other method that both makes my intention of stopping them unmistakable, and shows that I am not just another SG - my confidence and skill will conquer cowards and thieves.

                  Many LPOs say that "retailers should focus more on preventing the problem before entering the store, rather than trying chase the problem out the door", and that is exactly what I do.
                  And here's the bonus: both my employer and the client have given permission for me to arrest if I want, which I have done. But deterrence is both more fun and a whole helluva lot safer.

                  Rule #1: Go home at the end of the day in an upright position, with everything attached, and with peace of mind for having done the job well.

                    It's an interesting place to work once you get over the culture shock, I would guess you're a college employee too?

                              Im currently at a psychiatric ward facility. Good pay, great benefits, good hours, but it is usually very dull and very boring here with spurs of stuff to do every once in a while, makes for long night usually.

                              I'm constantly looking for something with better pay and more stuff to do. I would like to get an actual armed job somewhere. I have been keeping an eye on both the Tacoma School District Patrol and the Port of Tacoma Patrol, both being Armed Security with law enforcement authority. Im also constantly watching places like colleges, apartment complexes, gated communities, etc... I would love work in a facility like that, one where I can be reactive and proactive alike as well as being well equipped and trained to handle threats and problems, unfortunately, work like that seems far and few between in this area.

I stand as an ordinary citizen. I have no right to; detain, interrogate or otherwise interfere with your personal property-... basically all that means is I'm a cop."-Officer Ernie
