Ever vigilant protecting the people of Gotham — err, we mean patrons of the New Hazlett and helping them find parking. (Which can sometimes be as challenging as being the Dark Knight.) Security attendants perform rounds and provide directions and parking assistance to our patrons. Cape and cowl not required. They also let the rest of the staff know about any irregularities inside or outside the building during their shift. Sometimes they work in conjunction with other hired security personnel.
