There are many things that keep a school running. One of which is security.
There are 11 security guards here at Alan B Shepard, seven of which are full time security guards.

Everyday the guards walk the hallways of Shepard keeping kids in check when needed, helping the student body and staff in many ways, and keeping the grounds safe.

These brave men and women accepted their jobs knowing that there is a chance of their life being at risk when taking the precautions necessary to protect the growing teens of district 218.

An average day on the job usually is from seven o’clock in the morning, till about three thirty in the afternoon. If there are games after school then the day doesn’t end until about 10 at night.

In order for men or women to be a security guard at Shepard they must have some sort of security background or background in law enforcement.

There are also opportunities for promotions, just like any other job.
One of the more popular security guards Paul Taylor likes working with the kids. Paul Taylor stated “ I like it because, I like the kids”.

This is a great quality to have considering the guards spend majority of their day with the kids in Shepard. Some guards spend a lot of time in the lunchroom during three, four, five, and even six period lunches.

Taylor also said that “If one thing were to make the security here at Shepard better, it would be for everybody to work together”.
