Area Relief Security Officer

A very important part of security work is ensuring that security professionals can perform their duties to the best of their ability. That means it’s essential they’re able to work established shifts, but also be given the rest they need to remain alert on the job. When a security professional’s work means they go beyond their allotted time shift, fatigue can mean less focus and more potential for mistakes. To prevent this, the Area Relief Security Officer is a vital part of any security team. That officer is tasked with filling any gaps in the security team rota, as needed. That also means helping members of the team who are ill, on holiday or who have had an emergency that means they had to leave work early.
