The 6 Key Types Of Event Security with Paramount Security

Let’s delve deeper into the various types of event security available for a broad range of events, and how Paramount Security can tailor our services to meet your specific needs.

Security For Parties & Celebrations

Celebrations like anniversaries, birthdays, or christenings deserve grandeur. Especially when planning a large guest list or involving performers and staging, security becomes crucial. The Institute of Alcohol Studies (IAS) found that a significant number of incidents involving alcohol occur during weekends and evenings. Paramount Security provides professional party security personnel trained in first aid, evacuation planning, and conflict management, ensuring guests can enjoy the event safely.

Event Security For The Hospitality Sector

The hospitality sector, contributing approximately £59.3 billion per year to the UK economy, requires robust security measures. With Paramount Security’s custom-built hospitality event security package, you can maintain total control. Our security officers can monitor the entrance to your event premises, tracking visitors and ensuring the flow of authorised attendees.

Festival & Concert Security

Festivals, concerts, and gigs carry well-documented risks. Paramount Security understands the need for effective festival security. We offer tailor-made security packages built with your unique event’s needs in mind. Whether you need dedicated security at the entrance or mobile patrols to safeguard campgrounds, we can adapt to any circumstances.

Sports Event Security

Sports events, attracting millions of spectators, require stringent security measures. Government figures on football-related crimes highlight public order offences (34%) and violent crime (21%) as major issues. Paramount Security provides a fully qualified and experienced security team trained in access point and car park security, counter-terrorism awareness, crowd control, and first aid.

Security For Charity & Corporate Events

Charity and corporate events often involve high-value property, making the risk of theft pressing. Paramount Security offers professional and robust charity event security solutions. Our expertly trained security personnel can offer guidance and information to your guests as they arrive, acting as the first point of contact for all attendees.

Wedding Day Security

Wedding days require meticulous planning and organisation. With alcohol likely to be involved, the risks of violent crime and criminal damage are magnified. Paramount Security offers a comprehensive wedding security package. Our security officers, dressed appropriately, ensure that your aesthetic is maintained while providing necessary information or guidance to guests.

How Many Security Officers Does My Event Need?

The number of security guards your event needs depends on several factors, including the number of expected attendees, the size of the venue, whether alcohol will be served, the event duration, and the presence of children or vulnerable people. As a general rule, it’s recommended to have at least 1 security officer per 150 guests. For larger-scale events or those with more complex requirements, additional guards may be necessary to ensure continued safeguarding. For example, if you’re planning a corporate celebration with around 450 attendees, we’d recommend having a minimum of 3 security officers in for the occasion.

Paramount Security is committed to providing top-notch security services tailored to your event’s needs. Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.
