Security Officer

Security officers monitor and protect properties from illegal activities in privately-owned or public areas. Generally, security officers patrol areas, answer phone calls, monitor people, and respond to emergency situations in hospitals, power plants, and retail stores.

A typical day in the life of a security officer might include:

  • Identifying potential risks or hazards to the property
  • Understanding the location's rules and regulations to establish methods for preventing criminal activity when possible
  • Providing a visual presence to help promote order and deter safety issues
  • Conducting on-site surveillance of properties by patrolling or using closed-circuit monitoring systems.
