DAILY ACTIVITY REPORT FOR SECURITY GUARDS
If you are a security guard it is very important that you take a daily activity report. Also called a DAR or Post Log, this documents exactly what has been done by you and, in a very real way, justifies your position. Even if the post or account you work at does not require you to create a post log it’s important that you do. It can really come in handy, protecting you from any accusation that was leveled against you. When you write down your activities on a per hour basis, any accusation can be proven to be inaccurate if your post log contradicts what was said about you. Also, if something important happens it can be reviewed by having it written down. If your post does not have post logs create your own. Again, reporting, in writing, what occurred during your shift is as important for you as the client. Most will respect that you document what you do.
