Event security planning & staffing custom-tailored to fit the desired atmosphere and level of risk

An Event Security Team serves as the event organizer’s partner, by aiding & assisting with time management, desired event outcome, servicing special guests, ushering vendors, post-event evaluating & reporting, logistics, and real-time problem-solving.

The above, of course, comes in addition to conducting the conventional security functions of vendor vetting, crowd control, controlling access points, mitigating property theft or damage, securing special guests, responding to medical emergencies, and courteously handling troublesome attendees.
