Another important component of our department are known as Campus Security Officers or CSO's. These non-sworn personnel are responsible for securing the various buildings on campus, performing routine security checks of their assigned areas and provide on-site presence in dorms and residential areas throughout campus during evening and night hours.


In addition, CSOs perform escorts Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and Sunday Evening through Thursday Evening from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. These are offered on campus only and pickups are on a first come first serve basis. 

If you are interested in employment as a Campus Security Officer the requirements are being able to pass a background check and oral interview. Be sure to check the Southern Miss Human Resources website for job postings as they become available.
