There is one final position which is not under any division or subdivision: the Duty Officer, which is a sort of public-relations representative and go-between to other subdivisions. The DO is responsible for giving tours of the sim to visitors and potential recruits and answering questions, and can call in Security, Linguistics or other departments when and where needed, including the Admiralty.

The Duty Officer position is one which requires a cool head, a complete understanding of the Linden Lab TOS and GFC rules, and professional behavior. The DO can find him or herself in difficult situations and must be able to maintain composure. A duty report will be filed after every shift.
