Benefits of Having Security at Your Outdoor Event

Security checks tickets outside a wine festivalWe’re in the midst of the most popular time of the year for outdoor events. It feels like each summer here in Western New York, there’s a multitude of events each weekend. Lawn fetes, carnivals, beer tents, festivals, block parties and more dominate the calendar from May through August.

If you’re planning on holding one of these events, it’s wise to hire a professional security detail to ensure everything runs smoothly. Here are some benefits to doing so:


Security can come in very handy when it comes to letting in those who belong at your event and keeping out those who don’t. This is especially important if your event requires a ticket, fee or some type of requirement just to enter. Even if an event is free to enter, security can help ensure that people do not enter areas they don’t belong, such as children trying to get into alcohol or gambling areas.

Peace of Mind/Deterrent

Having a noticeable security presence at your outdoor event will have a few effects. Some will feel more safe, knowing professionals are around to handle any issues that may arise, and thus are more likely to attend or stay longer. Others who may have been inclined to cause some sort of trouble, may now feel as though it’s not worth it as they’re more likely to be stopped. Studies have shown that people are less likely to commit crimes when security guards are present. And when issues like theft do pop up, they’re far more likely to be stymied.

The Alcohol Factor

Many summer events feature a beer tent or some equivalent way for adults to enjoy alcoholic beverages. There’s nothing wrong with people of the appropriate age enjoying some drinks with friends. However, a few people tend to ruin the fun for everyone with arguments, fights and generally disruptive conduct. A professional security guard will be able to diffuse situations like this and remove the offending party from the event.
