Security Work

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Wednesday, June 15, 2016 Under: Homeland Security
Security personnel work for all kinds of organisations and businesses, where buildings, property and people need protection. They work to prevent theft and other criminal activities and to alert police when the need arises. Typical tasks for security personnel include door supervision. Working in a nightclub, bar or public house, sometimes covering events and private functions. Typical duties of a door supervisor are checking people before they enter a premises to confirm identity, making sure they are in a fit state to enter and adhering to the dress code. Patrolling the premises and monitoring them from a control room. Dealing with any incidents and emergencies in a calm professional manner. Security guards cover industrial and commercial premises. Security guards are either static, which means looking after one site, or mobile, which means visiting several sites by means of a security vehicle.
