  • Ensuring surveillance by monitoring close-circuit systems or by patrolling the property
  • Controlling and managing access of unauthorized individuals to the property
  • Preparing daily reports related to the entry-exits of individuals who accessed the property

Average earning in security jobs is $12.00 per hour. Whereas there may not be any specific education requirements with most security jobs, experience (and sometimes fitness) is the key to earn better salaries in security jobs.
