  • Respond to fires and medical emergencies.
  • Monitor security systems and scanners.
  • Protect properties and patrons from theft, vandalism and violence.
  • Patrol properties or guarding gate entrances.
  • File incident reports.

Many will interact with customers and members of the public, so Unarmed Security Guards are often required to possess good customer service skills.
