Not sure if your special event needs a private security detail?
Common special events that need some type of security service detail can include:
Private Events: Parties, weddings, anniversaries, receptions, and dinners are a few examples of private events that are usually small but if it’s a high profile security risk, personal or VIP protection might be required. Large celebrations may require security guards at the entrance and exits to keep out unwanted guests. 5 Star doesn’t work with private events unless it’s high profile and in conjunction with local law enforcement. We do not do private parties and celebrations where anything that threatens our officers safety or integrity. We only employ the most vetted and moral active off-duty officers and are not bouncers.
Brand Communications Events: These can be private or public but usually are reserved for invite only guests. Brand events can be retail events, fashion shows, premiers, openings, launches, awards ceremonies, dinners, and a host of other examples. Armed security at the doors, personal VIP protection, security patrols, crowd management, and inventory site protection are just a few of the various security services 5 Star can provide for your upcoming brand event.
Charity Events: Nonprofits and charities run their budgets mostly from donations received by donors. Most of the funds come from fundraising events and charity events. These come in every shape imaginable. Gala dinners, bike rides, and marathons are examples of charity events requiring security services. Public events like marathons need route protection and traffic control. Larger events might also add crowd control and protest protection. If celebrities are a part of the event, personal VIP security service could be required in addition to their own personal guards.
Birmingham's premier security service provider
Community/National Events: From local fireworks celebrations on the Fourth of July at Vulcan to the World Games in 2021, there are security needs aplenty. Route security, traffic direction and control, armed security, security patrols, personal VIP protection, and crisis management have all been employed by 5 Star Security for our customers planning local holiday celebrations and community events.
Local/National Government Events: Inaugurations, primaries, ceremonial events, and festivals planned by local, state, or national law enforcement still have the need of private security firms. Depending on the size and nature of the event, and the amount of on-duty officers can be spared, extra security is usually hired from outside security firms. 5 Star Security only employs active off-duty law enforcement so there will be no difference between police officers and our officers.
Public Events: Parades, rallies, protests, and festivals put together by private individuals and companies might have to work with local law enforcement for traffic control, but all other security concerns will need to be addressed by a private security services firm. 5 Star Security offers route security, traffic control and direction, crowd control, crisis management, armed security patrols, and personal protection for any public events you are planning.
Brand Public Events: Some companies want to showcase a new product or invention to the world so they host public events like product demos, roadshows, exhibitions, and sampling events. Crowd control and asset protection is most crucial for these events. Crowds get excited easily and you need them manageable and need your inventory protected. 5 Star Security is the answer for your brand public event security needs!
Convention Events: Trade shows, conventions, roadshows, fairs, and festivals can be put on at exhibition halls like the BJCC year round. Car shows, boat shows, and gun shows come to Birmingham all year and have their own security concerns, mainly armed security for perimeter control and inventory/asset protection. 5 Star Security has been providing security solutions for convention events for over 15 years! Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our expert security service officers!
Sports Events: Local to international, all sporting events that draw a crowd and have ticketed entry will have the need for security services. Security patrols on foot and car, armed security for perimeter and entrances, crowd control, riot control, crisis management, asset/inventory protection, personal VIP protection, and a host of others are commonly needed for sporting events. Passions that run deep and the attendance level being high can make a sporting event a powder keg. These events need to be planned carefully so you have enough security at the right places. Contact 5 Star Security today to have your sporting events security measured and assessed.
special event security at its finest
There are many factors to consider when planning your special event security. Your security profile looks at things that drastically affect the proper security service solution. Is your event in public, out in the open? Or is it at a small conference room in a hotel? The amount of access unwanted persons have to your special event will determine the amount of armed guards needed for access points. Outside, public events will need extra security to cover roadways and foot traffic paths. Depending on crowd size and the publicity of the event, the amount of armed security required changes and there is no set amount. Do you need security to be less noticeable? The amount of uniformed and plainclothes guards also vary. Sometimes you need all uniformed or maybe you need a mix. Is the event controversial? Crowd management, riot management, and crisis management will need to be addressed for potential protests. Your security plan will be much more detailed and will cover a lot of topics. These are just a few of the topics we cover when doing your security profile assessment.
