Post Orders & Assignments (Lesson 7 of 16)
PRIOR TO MOVING
ANY CAMERA POSITIONING be sure to, check with your supervisor! Many locations have their video recording systems programmed to record in a certain manner and at certain times. If a security officer unknowingly moves the position of these cameras, serious problems may occur as a result.
REVIEW AND INSPECTION OF COMMUNICATION DEVICES
Many security officers will have two-way radio communication while working. Upon arrival at the facility, care should be taken to ensure the radio works properly and a fully-charged battery is readily available. A radio check will determine if the signal is “loud and clear.” Telephones are often readily available. Security officers should ensure there are no operational issues with the telephone system.
Special attention should be given to cellular phones to ensure that they are charged and their signal is strong.
As with any other equipment utilized by security officers, proper care and storage of communication equipment is required to ensure proper communication ability exists if it is required. If an officer discovers any problem with equipment, he or she should immediately
notify a supervisor.
