Anti Shitcurity tipps
To avoid being Those guys Make sure that when you bring prisoners in to be searched, bucklecuff them search them, put it in a backpack and confiscate any contraband (stuff they aren't alowwed eg. magboots+assistant) and give the loot to the warden (DO NOT STEAL IT FOR YOURSELF). Do not forget about captives, always keep an eye on them, even if the warden is there, he can somettimes be engrossed and not notice a breakout.
If in doubt, ask the HOS, if unsure of space law always see your superviser, never lawyers.In the end, Hos reports to cap and CAP may decide what is lawful and what isn't.
Finally,you Are NOT BATMAN
NEVER KILL unless you have a VERY good reason, ALWAYS seek the HOS or CAPTAIN first, only captain can decide a man's fate...
How to bust out of sec
This next bit is purely for referance of how people MIGHT escape from sec, do not use this to powergame and remove all escape
take the light from the side of the room
Bash the windows
alternatively your handcuffs may work if they are human cuffs ( iron)
When patrolling think about the places that are most likely of interest to criminals eg. EVA . Always check the radio to see if you are needed elsewhere. You have an attachement on your PDA that allows you to call beepsky, if you are in a tough spot and possibly about to die, RUN,call beepsky and hide,theres no shame in living, we all like to live.If someone is acting wierdly, don't be afraid to bring em in and search them, you may even find a traitor. Additionally,if someone pushes you over, you have the right to arrest them for assualt on an officer.
Dealing with pests
In your adventures you WILL come across these pests be aware of how to deal with them
Clowns, the bane of security (or not) they will usually come to sec and harass you with laser tag guns, the way to deal with them is to simply, HONK, 60% of the time when pranked, a simple HONK has been shown to end abuse thereafter. Always watch the floors around these guys, as if they slip you, you will be robbed, stunned cuffed and paraded around the station as a trophy.
The fear of Nanotrasen, if you meet one of these guys, you are dead unless you are smart, accept you cannot fight them, don't be a hero, run away hide,and tase them repeatedly then ask for help, if they have a shield, just run,or if you are incredibly robust, disarm them and whack them a bit then run away with thier shield, then repeat and use thier shield to your benefit.
If you meet someone who may be a ling, don't metagame, just watch them closely and if they do anything non human, fry em, if they get back up immediately after being stunned, fry em if they grow extra limbs, Deep fry em.
If your security force is understaffed FEAR NOT! you can call upon the patriotism of your fellow crew to help, you can make them deputies. To make one, find a willing person, loyalty implant them, give them a baton and a deputy armband (found in hos' office)), You can now eat donuts once more!. It is advised to give them a toolbox. An example of a deputy chaplain:
