What is event security?

Event security is the measures put in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff at major events.
Event security is usually overseen by private security companies who will provide a team of security guards and other security personnel.

The main role of even security is to contribute to a successful event by dealing with any potential incidents that may arise, from preventing crowd trouble and property damage, to dealing with medical emergencies. Depending on the specifics of your event, the responsibilities of your security team will vary with crowd management, mobile patrols, and some of the key tasks they will likely perform.

When event organisers are planning for an event, security should be at the forefront of their minds at all stages as the safety of attendees is always the most important thing.

What are the roles of event security staff?

The role of your security staff will vary based upon the needs associated with your event, but in general, the jobs conducted by event security staff include:
  • Crowd control
  • Conflict resolution
  • Managing entrances
  • Preventing property damage
  • Conducting risk assessments
  • Checking tickets
  • Dealing with intruders
  • Providing first aid support

What Events Require Security Staff?

Any event with a significant amount of attendees will likely require professional event security services.
At Prime Secure we provide officers for the following common events:

Sports Events

Security at sports events major part of the events industry and we can provide staff highly trained in performing a range of roles including ticket management, crowd control, stewarding, and VIP security.

On match day, stewards become the face of the football club they have been contracted by and as a major part of the customer experience, it is vital that your manned guarding service is of the highest standards.


Smaller occasions such as celebrity or high value weddings often require a personal security service to ensure the location is well protected.

The responsibilities of wedding security officers tend to include carrying out a detailed risk assessment of the wedding location, responding to emergencies, and defending against intrusion.


To ensure your party runs smoothly and all your guests have a fun and enjoyable experience, we can provide front of house security for the venue.

Security staff will manage access to the event, check tickets, search for contraband, maintain the dress code, and keep out uninvited party crashers.

If an incident does occur over the course of your party, your first aid trained guards will respond appropriately, secure the site, and contact the relevant emergency services if required.


Concerts and festivals are boisterous by nature so having a security company on site is vital to crown management and emergency planning.

A prime secure guard is fully trained to provide a range of protection and support services prior to and during the concert including preventing overcrowding, spotting hazards, and dealing with emergency situations.

Key event security questions

When event management are planning for their event there are some vital things to consider in regard to security.
Some of the most important questions that should be asked during event planning include:
  • Should attendees be searched upon arrival?
  • How many staff are needed to conduct searches/operate body scanners?
  • Who will coordinate your professional security officers on the day of the event?
  • What training is essential for each role?
  • Can the venue be secured effectively?
  • Are there escape routes in case of emergencies?
  • Do access control barriers need to be erected? (In the case of outdoor events fences or similar are likely to need to be put in place).
