Student Security

Posted by Michelle Rucker on Jan 11, 2019 2:33 pm

We are exploring the possibility of a student security team for our union. Some examples of what they would support include cultural events, ticket takers, making sure people don't come in through exits. Does anyone already have something like this on their campus? Would you be willing to share your position description?

Hello Michelle,
We have thought about this same idea of creating a student security position in the past but the risk/liability factors of assigning security duties to students outweighed the benefits.  We rely heavily on campus police for "security" and our Building Managers know to contact PD if issues come up during their shift.  In addition, we hire an outside security company to help with security for major events. The tasks you listed are similar to what our Building Mangers do.

Thanks for posting!
