Handy Tips for Hiring the Best Event Security http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2010/10/handy-tips-for-hiring-the-best-event-security/ http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2010/10/handy-tips-for-hiring-the-best-event-security/#comments Tue, 12 Oct 2010 21:35:24 +0000 http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/?p=32 If you are searching for an event security service provider for a particular event that you are organising you need to keep in mind some essential facts about choosing the right one. Remember, you must choose an agency that you can easily trust. Here are some tips on how you can check an authentic security agency.

Accreditations

Ensure that the security agency you are hiring has official accreditations. Any reputable security agency should have some accreditation. If they claim that they are members of a regulatory service, the first thing you must do is check for proof.

Review of Services

Be sure to check that the agency you want to hire is competent to provide the specialised services that you require for the event you are organising. For example, a one-off concert will require special security services and the firm you are hiring should have experience in that area. Many agencies these days have multi-skilled staff capable of handling a variety of events, but you should enquire about their experience in your required field also.

Client Satisfaction

You can also request to see a few current or past clients who have used the services of the agency you are looking to hire. Check with the clients and find out if they were satisfied by the services provided by the agency. If the agency is unable or unwilling to provide client information then it is advisable that you should look for another event security firm.

Contractual Obligations

Always be sure to check the contract thoroughly before signing. This is very important to ensure that you are fully covered in the event of any mishap caused by the security personnel you hire. The contract is also vital because it determines the charges of the service.

Cost

Look for an event security firm that will provide you maximum security and is also affordable to you. Don’t opt for a cheap company just to fit your budget constraints as you are responsible for the safety of all attendants to your event to consider. You can cut down on other cost of the event but don’t compromise on the security if you are not getting a good agency at low cost.

Equipment

Most of the event security firms provide their own transport, uniforms, radios and other equipment, but it is advisable that you check the equipment before the event commences. Ensure that all the equipment is insured and registered and is working correctly. Discuss with your agency any specific equipment that you require before hiring them. If any particular equipment is absolutely necessary and the agency does not provide it then it is better to look for another security agency.

All the above tips will help you choose the best event security agency assure the best possible safety for all the people attending the event you are organising.

Event Security Tips http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2010/08/event-security-tips/ http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2010/08/event-security-tips/#comments Fri, 20 Aug 2010 14:42:16 +0000 http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/?p=27 A vital part of planning any event is to make adequate arrangements for event security. The level of security required at an event will depend on several factors. The most important factors are number and type of people who will attend the event. If celebrities, politicians, corporate leaders, or well known people are attending, you will need to make special arrangements for them. Some celebrities may bring their personal bodyguards, others may not. In either case you must make sure that such people get adequate security, and also that their guards do not harass other guests.

It is always advisable to consult an expert while arranging for event security. Experts who are familiar with these issues will be able to foresee problems and suggest precautionary measures. Employing an expert will also increase the confidence of the people who are invited. It is advisable to have a person who is familiar with the venue and the surrounding areas during the threat assessment session.

As event manager, you will have to decide the number and kind of personnel you will hire, as well as the equipment required. Properly trained personnel may charge more, but are better equipped to deal with situations where timely intervention makes all the difference. Personnel with Security Industry Authority licenses are required if important guests are invited.

If you are organising an event where a large number of people are expected to come, you have to make arrangements for their safety by employing crowd control experts. You also need to make sure that there are adequate parking attendants and traffic control assistants. These jobs cannot always be done by volunteers and properly trained personnel are mandatory, especially to deal with emergency situations like fire or natural calamities. In such situations, the event security team has to make sure that the crowd is evacuated systematically because panic spreads very quickly in large gatherings and may lead to disastrous consequences.

Often the use of CCTV can help cut costs by reducing the number of staff required on the ground.  The advantage of the latest CCTV systems is that the footage of these cameras can be sent through the internet to any location. They can be made to tilt, pan or zoom through wireless commands, and may have video analysis software meaning that they can be programmed to identify certain kinds of movements. They can also be connected to other devices like automatic doors, fire alarms, and card readers, providing security without human intervention.

Good event security agencies have ex-servicemen in their teams and use cutting edge technology to ensure that security arrangements are non-intrusive but foolproof.

Security is a Must for All Celebrities http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2010/05/security-is-a-must-for-all-celebrities/ http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2010/05/security-is-a-must-for-all-celebrities/#comments Mon, 17 May 2010 11:58:18 +0000 http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/?p=21 Celebrities worldwide require special protection due to their raised profile making them keen targets for kidnappers and stalkers. They belong not only to the glamour and fashion world but also from the world of arts, sports, business and politics. Despite having the glamour and the money, these high profile people rarely have a normal social life. They are always surrounded by their body guards even on their personal vacations. They are always in danger of losing their lives and property. Hence, they hire private security agencies to protect themselves.

Since these people are vulnerable targets, the specialised security that they require can come at a high price, which is something these people can very easily afford. They are protected by the best agencies, providing extensively trained and highly experienced staff. Security guards can protect the wealth, property and the lives of celebrities. If you want a glimpse of this tight security, then just look at the red carpet of any film festival. Every celebrity has guards with specialised responsibilities, and all the individual guards are in turn managed by the head guard or a security manager. Privacy is one aspect which these people have to compromise on, whilst working their way up to stardom.

Celebrity security guards need to be extra alert and attentive. They must be responsible for their activities since they are entrusted with the lives of important personalities. They should make the environment in which their rich clients move, as much free from danger as possible. Whenever there is a social gathering which a celebrity has to attend, the guards serving him or her personally visit the venue beforehand and check it thoroughly for any possible threats. They also check out the venue for the security arrangements there.

Celebrities and high profile figures have access to the latest security gadgets in their homes for their protection. They are usually transported about in customised luxurious cars which are often bullet proof and they do not have the freedom of opening the windows of these cars. Any security detail will usually accompany their clients everywhere they go, to ensure their safety at all times. A convoy of cars often accompanies the vehicle of an important personality which makes it difficult for any outsider to tell which car the celebrity is being transported.

With a rise in fame, producing mass media attention, bodyguards become ever more important to the lives of celebrities and movie stars.

Corporate Event Security http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2009/12/corporate-event-security/ http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2009/12/corporate-event-security/#comments Thu, 10 Dec 2009 09:45:51 +0000 http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/?p=19 The kind of event security required depends on the type of event. Managers of corporate events should keep the following things in mind.
If the planners do not make it known that they recognise the importance of making special arrangements for key corporate personnel, it is likely that the event will not be well attended. High profile corporate guests are potential targets for kidnappers and hostage takers. And in today’s world, well-known corporate leaders are targeted by terrorists too. If companies are not satisfied with arrangements, they may not be willing to send the people who have the power to take important decisions.
The confidence of the attendees can be improved in the following ways:
1. Guests feel more secure if the security team has members who have been in the military or law enforcement departments.
2. Consulting a reputed expert in the field will also be a good idea. This will enable planners to take the right precautionary measures according to the risk assessment of the expert. The attendees will also feel more confident about attending a meeting where arrangements are supervised by an expert.
3. The expert will also be able to foresee the impact of emergency situations such as fire or a natural disaster on a particular venue.
Usually, event security personnel supervise the evacuation of buildings to prevent stampedes. Thus it is important that the personnel are given adequate instructions about how to deal with emergency situations. Planners must ensure that they have adequate arrangements for first aid and well chalked out plans for the transportation of people who need medical attention.
Since ID badges are issued to the attendees of most corporate events, it may be a good idea to incorporate security clearance devices in the badge itself. This will enable the guests to use the badge as a ticket for admittance.
Most of the time it is not be possible or feasible to have personnel posted in every corner of the venue. But it may be important to monitor all entrances and exits and also places like parking lots. In such a case, one person can keep an eye on a number of locations through a CCTV (Close Circuit Television) system.
Nowadays, wireless cameras that can transmit the footage through the internet to remote devices are available. These cameras are called IP cameras as they use internet protocol to transfer data. The latest models can transmit footage to hand held devices like mobile phones. The advantage of using IP cameras is that the footage can be stored at a different location. Thus the chances of it being destroyed by people who breach the security of a certain venue are reduced. Moreover, these cameras can be programmed to detect certain kinds of motion and send alerts via SMS or email.
Familiarity with the venue and the surrounding areas is a major factor that determines the efficiency of event security personnel.
Each event manager should keep these things in mind while making arrangements for large corporate meetings.

Bodyguards – a Necessity for Celebrities and VIPs http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2009/10/bodyguards-%e2%80%93-a-necessity-for-celebrities-and-vips/ http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/2009/10/bodyguards-%e2%80%93-a-necessity-for-celebrities-and-vips/#comments Tue, 20 Oct 2009 13:21:54 +0000 http://www.utopiaeventsecurity.co.uk/content/?p=15 If you are a celebrity or a VIP and want that additional reassurance of safety, you need to look for bodyguard security services. There are a number of event security services who have a number of well trained and highly skilled, professional, VIP and celebrity bodyguards for protection purposes. You can search for security services on the Internet. Security company websites will help you find what you are looking for.

Depending on your requirements, you can get a VIP bodyguard or hire security personnel for an event. Celebrities, politicians as well as business tycoons are often in need of efficient and reliable bodyguards to stay secure from mobs, paparazzi, and terrorists. With terrorist activities becoming common in the present day, bodyguards are in demand like never before.
Skills you need to look for in celebrity bodyguards
Be it a VIP bodyguard or a celebrity bodyguard, you need to make sure if the bodyguard personnel are reliable and if they will be able to provide you the protection that you need.
• Discretion is an important attribute that celebrity bodyguards must possess. The bodyguards should be good at keeping secrets to themselves. A VIP bodyguard is a close protection officer who needs to be well trained so as to not let out any information concerning the celebrity or VIP that he/she is protecting.
• If you are a VIP or a celebrity, make sure that you are able to feel free with your bodyguard, because he/she will always be close to you. If you think you are not comfortable with a bodyguard for some reason, avoid hiring him/her. You should be able to be absolutely yourself before your bodyguard without any hesitation.
• In UK bodyguards may be unarmed or armed with a valid arms license. If you are hiring bodyguards who are unarmed, they should have physical strength to restrain a crowd from advancing towards you.
• Celebrity bodyguards should look serious, well built, and appear to be unapproachable. They should instill a certain sense of awe and fear in people; this will deter the wrong people from getting near you.
Keep certain factors in mind
Make sure that the bodyguard personnel you choose can be trusted for providing protection from kidnapping, assassination, assault, loss of confidential details, stalking, and other perils.

It is important to look for a reputed company offering bodyguard services. Try going through the feedback of other clients who have used the security services of the company and are totally satisfied. Find out what it will cost you to hire the services of bodyguards from a specific renowned company; have a budget for yourself and make sure that you get bodyguard personnel within a fixed budget. Trust and reliability are the two most important factors that a bodyguard and celebrity relationship is based on; this should be intact and well maintained.
