When district security officers are unable to perform their duties because of an emergency, including, but not be limited to, war, epidemic, fire, flood or work stoppage, or when the emergency necessitates additional security services, the Board may contract with a private licensed security agency.

Campus Supervisors / security officers shall conduct themselves in ways that promote goodwill and cooperation on the part of students, district staff and the general public.

In those rare cases when minimal contact is required, pepper spray or other weapons are strictly prohibited from use.
