There is always some measure of fame when you work with the public in a position of authority. Your presence will be felt and recognized by gangs of loitering youth. If your Mall Security exploits go above and beyond the normal call of duty, your fame may spread. If you become known as "the Mall Cop nobody messes with" after you slide tackle a perp when he heads for the door with a lavender-scented candle tucked under his hoodie, your fame will be in the category of legendary. At least among the mall crowd.
