Whether you are planning a corporate event, an a-list party, or a festival, having security is a fundamental concern. You have a duty to keep your attendees safe, and the best way to do that is to ensure that you have the best possible security guard in place, or a whole team for larger events.
But how do you find the right security for your one-off event? Let’s take a look at the basic process behind this, and how to ensure you find the best team for your needs.
Plan & Define Your Event
Before you even start looking for security, you need to have all the plans in place for your event. Having this information on hand and being able to pass it on to the security team will drastically improve that team’s ability to provide the best possible security for you. Ask yourself:
- What is the nature of the event?
- How many people will be in attendance?
- What will your admission policy be?
- Have you considered fire safety rules and other corollary needs?
- Are there any local concerns you need to know about?
The more finely you are aware of these issues and what kind of event it is, the more likely it is that you can source the best possible security team for the occasion.
Ask For Recommendations
If you know people who have planned some events in the past, you should seek out their help for recommendations on where to find a decent security team to do the job right. You may find a single security team in the local area who are known to be good at their jobs, in which case you might simply contact them with information for a request. Asking around is often highly effective, so don’t overlook its power.
Go Through An Agency
Often, however, an even better way to get hold of the best team is to go through an agency. There are plenty of these around, and you should be able to find one that works well for you and has prior experience in securing a one-off event. Such agencies are a safe way of procuring a security team because they have already heavily vetted the teams and individuals in question, allowing you to have greater confidence in them as a security team. As such, this is a great way to find security for any occasion.
Work Out What Type Of Security You Need
It is important to understand what type of security you need. This includes an understanding of the severity of the occasion. Will you just need a security guard on the door, or will you also need some guards within the venue, searching people and keeping an eye out for violence? Be aware of this, and try to get a figure for how many guards you will need.
If you can do all that, you should be able to find security for your one-off event without too much trouble.
