Entertainment is all about enjoyment for paying customers but it means hard work for the people making sure the good times stay good. Whether it’s a movie theater, a theater for live performers, a sports stadium, or a music or dance venue, general security services from a first-rate provider like Spear Security Inc. is typically a must.
What Makes Entertainment Venue Security Different from Other Types of Security?
The key is ensuring the safety of the people and property without spoiling the fun. People seek out entertainment as a means of escaping ordinary concerns; they want to feel safe but they don’t want to have to think about it. Good entertainment venue security blends into the background until the moment it is needed. Once the matter has been resolved, we blend right back in.
What are the Main Tasks of Entertainment Venue Security?
They boil down to two things:
- Prevention is always the best approach to security. With entertainment, that typically means managing both parking areas and entrances so that only ticket holders or authorized guests are allowed inside. While non-security personnel can typically handle most of the work involved with ticketing, security may be needed to politely make sure that no contraband enters the building. At venues where liquor is served, checking IDs is essential not only to maintain order but also for proper licensure with local authorities. At Spear Security, we can help with this routine but important task while maintaining a light touch.
- Deescalationis also always the best approach when prevention proves insufficient. Most incidents at theaters and music venues happen when people lose control of their behavior for one reason or another. That makes it all the more essential for security personnel to remain calm and do everything possible to gently but firmly persuade troublemakers that going home is the best course of action.
