Each guard post has an Officer’s Duty Book or “post-orders.” Guards are thoroughly familiar with the post orders at all posts. Guards are familiar with the post orders prior to working on the posts. GIS provides enough time in which the guards read and familiarize themselves with the post orders prior to duty on the post.  Under no circumstance shall any guard neglect his/her duties in order to familiarize him/herself with post orders. Guards perform in a professional manner; and observe the environment when necessary, question those persons whose activities arouse suspicion. Security Guards serve as the first responders to all security alarms and emergency situations within there area of assignment.  Security Guards verbally report threats and potentially threats activities they observe while on duty. Whenever possible, guards report a serious or potentially serious problem before they respond so they may receive all the necessary backup and support to lessen or eliminate the potential threats. Security Guards testify in various judicial proceedings.  Only security officers have access to key and alarm codes to permit entry into the building during after-hours periods.  In some outlying areas, and/or if multiple reports incidents occur, guards may act independently as the primary security response until law enforcement assistance arrives.
