Special Event Security

Plan  | Assess | Execute

What we do

From community parades and school fairs to corporate events and concerts, Gates Security provides optimal professional security services needed for access control, crowd management and crisis response planning. To do this, our approach is three-pronged: Advance Planning, Threat Assessment, and Execution. This ensures we are always proactive, ready to mobilize then neutralize all threat profiles. We believe preparation backed with experience creates the ultimate security posture.

  • Deploying uniformed armed officers
  • Providing plain-clothed, unarmed sentry services
  • Establishing security tents, mobile command vehicles and traffic control for large public events
  • Deploying discreet coat and tie off-duty police officers for private functions at home or area hotels
  • VIP protection for special events that attract media and high profile guests and attendees
  • Work closely with security managers to coordinate the special needs of attendees or keynote speakers
  • Liaise with peripheral vendors to align safety and security protocols

How we do it

Our security staff are trained facilitators who participate in every aspect of an event’s safety and security responsibilities. Our staff and experience is diverse. Our security teams are adept to environments requiring a discreet presence and a conservative approach. However, we are equally experienced in providing an assertive posture for events that may be host to controversial attention or attract undesirable elements.

Dedicated project manager

The project manager assigned to your event will visit the event location in advance and will conduct a walk through to ensure that the necessary resources have been addressed. We ensure that any special coordination with facility management or coordination with emergency services is complete. Our project manager will handle tasks such as communicating with:

  • Local law enforcement
  • Emergency safety services (ambulance and fire) to coordinate evacuation plans and establish meeting areas in the event of a medical emergency
  • Facility/venue security to ensure resources are working in tandem with one another
  • Production staff to ensure that all security concerns are being addressed

VIP security
