Overview of the Incident: At the very start of the shift I held a briefing with the entirety of the security department. I outlined my guidelines with my staff and stated that I would not tolerate infighting or committing illegal activities under the guise of security work, in addition to establishing a code of ethics that was easy to understand and follow for the rest of my staff. I attempted more than a few times to host a re-training session to more intensively drill my staff on how to appropriately exercise force as well as how to better protect themselves. The errands I ran for the captain caused me to stall the re-training and focus on the directives most important to me at the given time.

Midway into the shift during a downtime period while I was fulfilling a task for the captain, Azka and Volvalaad decided to utilize the fighting ring in the holodeck without utilizing the provided holodeck gloves. Eventually the fight escalated, whoever started it was mostly irrelevant to me at the given time as my guidelines specifically covered advising against the mis-use of force in any given situation. Neither officer chose to step back until I arrived at the scene incidentally, and I noticed both Azka and Sak'ha wailing on Volvalaad. Witness testimony was fuzzy on the details of who instigated, but most indications pointed directly at Volvalaad initially provoking the fight but Azka gladly choosing to reciprocate. 

I chose to discipline both based on the context I gathered. I gathered all the necessary information rather quickly, as Volvalaad and Azka both argued with one another over security comms and gave most of the information I needed to make a decision. After I finalized the demotion of Azka and the suspension of Volvalaad, the latter approached me later and told me to "Enjoy the Incident Report".
Did you report it to a Head of Department or IAA? If so, who?: The incident was relayed to the captain and to the head of personnel Thea Marietti in substantial detail regarding the offenses of Volvalaad in particular.
Actions taken: Ihuru Azka was demoted to cadet and was subjected to retraining regarding their failure to distance themselves from a situation they had roughly equal responsibility to cease and desist from along with Volvalaad. Volvalaad himself was suspended outright and removed from my department, given the context of his record in addition to many other statements attributed to Azka as harassing slurs, particularly attacking the species and sex of the other offending officer. Likewise, I witnessed the last half of the fight, and Volvalaad proceeded to attempt in re-engaging another fight with Azka. Regrettably, we never found Sak'ha. They seemed to have evaded security attention for awhile and it was assumed they fled the scene and went to cryo far later into the shift.
Additional Notes: This incident was not the first occasion I've had to deal with Volvalaad, particularly I've had to bear witness to his terrible attitude and his stubborn refusal to obey simple uniform regulation. This situation particularly solidified my opinion that Volvalaad was an incredibly aggressive, dangerous and brawling type of security officer rather than the peacekeeper mindset I look for and try to emphasize as a good standard for a security officer. Volvalaad is also generally incapable of following orders that do not include shooting things. Volvalaad may be better off as a soldier rather than a security officer, due to his observed tendency to be incredibly hot-headed and prone to making foolish decisions at the expense of others.

I also suggest the aggression of Azka to be looked into as well. I already reprimanded said individual and attempted to show a little more good faith to someone who I only had one historically poor incident in observing so far, but I believe the officer needs to understand foresight and vision and have that hammered into them for the sake of their own improvement. As for Volvalaad, I believe he is a lost cause. He is incredibly arrogant from my observations and should ideally be suspended from working in the Internal Security Department.
