Mall Cop

Physical Danger

Any Security Guard is going to face physical danger. Most positions require that you work with a few individuals at a time. But a Mall Cop has to work with hundreds of people, all with their own issues. When things run smoothly, there's no danger. There will be times, though, when you are going to be called to make someone do something they won't want to do. Like leave. Or stay. Whenever this is the case there is a chance they will pull something unexpected, and Mall Cops have to be ready to protect themselves and other customers and businesses.
