From Station

Security / Tactical

The Security / Tactical Department incorporates Security and Tactical duties. All personnel in this career field receive training in security procedures and tactical readiness. This doubles the efficiency of the department.

Security Offices

Although the main Security offices are located on Deck 2, civilians can access immediate assistance through the kiosk in The Plaza which is staffed around the clock. The office area itself, much like the layout of a Police Station, is a bullpen where Junior Officers and Enlisted members of the Department work alongside each other with the Officer on Duty at the main desk to facilitate civilian needs. Both the Chief and Assistant Chief's offices branch off from the main office and can be accessed via doors at the rear.
