In addition, incumbents may be delegated responsibility for additional assignments to meet the unique public safety needs of the campus. Examples include: range master, canine handler, field training, defensive tactics instruction, motorcycle patrol, bicycle patrol, special evidence technician, crime prevention specialist, community relations programs, and a member of a critical response or special reaction team (e.g., sexual assault or emergency medical).
