    I have worked as a USAF Security Policeman. Then on an in-house force for a government research facility (excellent job, really miss it), then worked campus security for a short time. I am now working corrections.

      Well I kind of covered this in my "Hello" thread in the Introductions section but here for the record. I'm a PSO working for a PSC (Private Security Contractor) that fields both PSOs as well as reserve PO/LEOs. Posts can vary from strictly O&R gigs to CRE and range from Construction Sites, Construction Zones, Banks and Credit Unions, College Campus w. Campus Police, Government Housing & APT Complexes, Office Parks and High Rises, Shopping Centres (Vehicle Patrol usually) and up scale gated communites.

      It's nice to have a wide variety of posts, but I'm a field grunt and not so much the glossy shoe types in the high rises where a lot of guff is given by hoity toity types who have no operational authority over you but like to act like their stuff don't stink. I prefer walking patrol beats of O&R/CRE on Construction Zones and Government Housing complexes where one can breathe fresh air, help people out from time to time with problems de-escalating situations to where LEO involvement isn't neccessary and get compliance from all per the site's regs. Most S/Os I know usually don't make it very long in those enviorments as it's either too troublesome due to the 5% bad apples at every place, or they prefer air conditioning... so me and a few others who "hold it down" as the chief likes to say, get to work those posts. Most I've found want the golf cart gigs and credit unions where you stand around in one (of a few) places for a 12 to 14 hour shift and your knees lock up and it's just all around stuffy.
