Must maintain duty rosters for the Security Department, ensure all Security members are trained in their duties, and maintain "holding" facilities for people arrested (I.E. Brig).

In emergencies the CS is called to be Duty Officer on the bridge. The CS reports to the XO.

The Deputy of Security assists the Chief of Security in the daily work; in issues regarding Security and administrative matters. If required the Deputy must be able to take command of the Security department. The DS reports to the CS.
