What is the role of a Nightclub Security Officer - Bouncer?

A Nightclub Security Officer Bouncer's duties are to provide security, to check legal age and drinking age, to refuse entry for intoxicated persons, and to deal with aggressive behavior or non-compliance with statutory or establishment rules.

Most nightclubs have a comprehensive security plan to help ensure the safety of club patrons and allow them to enjoy themselves at the club. "Doormen" or "door girls" are an important part of this security plan and they may be assigned bouncer duties.

Doormen and door girls are typically the first club employees you meet when entering and the last people you see when leaving a club. Their bouncer duties may include controlling access to the club and providing security for the crowd inside the establishment and outside the door.
