Job Description :
A Student Campus Security Guard’s day to day routine can be quite dynamic. There are often various incidents that arise, and security team members will need to respond in a coordinated manner with other team members to come to a professional and appropriate resolution to the incident.

Security personnel as Student Residences must keep a close watch over activities on the property, and rely on the many cameras throughout the property.
Monitoring access points and detecting intruders and unauthorized activity is a daily occurrence. Security will often investigate incidents, putting together reports coordinated with video evidence.
Police officers may attend the property and require evidence to proceed with a higher level investigation, and security’s efforts may be the difference in apprehending a criminal.
Patrols and creating security presence and deterrence is a must.
Unpredictability and maximum effect are of prime importance.
Security guards will walk the property, vigilant for anything out of place, recognizing any suspicious activities and responding accordingly.
