Security

Never underestimate the need for security, especially at large events where there are large numbers of people and if you are handling a lot of money. You may also need security while setting up equipment, staging or marquees, especially when these are left overnight before or after the event.

Security can also be necessary to provide the safe control of big crowds at an event. Different levels of crowd control will be required depending on the location, time and nature of your event. For example, if your event is in a public space you need a high level of security and crowd control to ensure public safety.

Hire a professional security company with a good reputation and record. Security companies can provide services for cash handling, bag checks, crowd control etc. Make sure you give clear instructions to your chosen company and that they understand your specific requirements. Be sure to tell the Police you are planning an event, this can be done via the Event Safety Advisory Group.
