I think that the security personnel we see are basically military police. And while like modern day MP's they can be employed in combat, it isn't their specialty. A security guard might be able to (in an emergency) take the helm, but not their primary training.
Millitary police type duties are definitely part of their job but I'd say they are a bit more than just that. They're like what the Marines were up until the beginning of the 20th century. They maintained shipboard security but were more like ship-based soldiers with additional security missions than just military police and they participated in plenty of land actions and combat.
