Hotel security protects hotel guests, employees, and property. Hotel security typically works directly on the hotel property, patrolling the grounds, and in an office, monitoring security cameras or filling out paperwork. This is a full-time or part-time entry-level position that requires strategic thinking and a discerning eye. Hotel security may follow a chain of command, but they are sometimes only one among two or three guards who report directly to hotel management. If the situation calls for it, hotel security may also work with the local police department.
