The position of SRO is an as needed position that may require an SRO to work any shift on any given day as dictated by the needs of the business. Therefore, an SRO must be flexible to respond quickly to work any location or any shift in a pre-determined geography.

While assigned to work at any Client site, an SRO must follow all Client rules and adhere to all standards set forth by the Client and GardaWorld Security Company.
Upon arrival to the assigned response post, a GardaWorld SRO will be tasked with the same duties as a Security Officer and will abide by the same policies and procedures.
An SRO may be assigned to other operational special duties or tasks as determined by the Branch Manager or designated representative.
An SRO is expected to remain in the position for a minimum period of 6 months and at the end of that time may request reassignment to a standard post; however an SRO may be offered the opportunity to fill a standard post earlier than 6 months if business needs dictate or if requested by Client of CSM.
