Guidelines For Safety | Party Security Tips & Advice
When hiring private security guards for a party, it’s important to take into consideration how your guests will feel about the presence of security personnel. In some cases, it makes more sense to have a full team of uniformed security guards to manage guests and prevent non-invited parties from entering a building or area. Other times, it makes sense to have a more discrete security presence so as not to unnecessarily alarm your guests or create suspicion.
To address the variety of party security needs, our San Francisco offices have several options that are appropriate for any type of social gathering. If discretion is important, we have undercover and plain clothes security officers available. If it’s more important to have a visual deterrent conducting perimeter patrols and managing parking duties, we have trained uniformed security to handle that as well. We also have marked and unmarked patrol units available, as well as a 24-hour dispatch team that has a direct line to local police should the need arise.
If you have questions about what type of security is most appropriate for a party or event, please contact us to learn more about the services we provide.
