Talla Keyali, Chief of Security onboard the Orville

I'm chief of security. I know where everybody is.Lieutenant Talla Keyali[1]
The Chief of Security, Chief Security Officer, or Security Chief, is in charge of the safety for everyone on board their assigned vessel. It is a Lieutenant position below Lieutenant Commander and above Ensign. The Chief of Security, however, has the right to initiate Directive 38 which overrides all other positions on board the Vessel, even the Captain. This is only supposed to be done in situations of dire importance when the superiors are unable to lead, doing so without the necessary prompt can lead to discharge from service.

The Chief of Security is usually seen working on the Bridge along with the Commanders and Captain. However, they also have their own office adorned with cameras viewing high traffic spots around the entire ship.[2]
