Interview Answer

1 Answer


As a Resident Assistant, one of our duties is to keep the residence halls safe by enforcing alcohol policies. After receiving a call about an alleged alcohol violation, I first called the university police department and then my supervisor for guidance. After getting off of the phone, I proceeding to knock on the door and collect information until the university police could arrive. The situation was handled in very organized and calm way, but after further evaluation I realized that it would have been a good idea to call for backup. Most alcohol violations end calmly, but there is always a risk of the violator being belligerent.
