Security Concerns At Sporting Events Austin, Texas
At any major event including sporting events, a large part of security is crowd control. We help make sure everyone makes it to their assigned seats, stays out of areas they are not supposed to be in, and doesn’t bring any contraband items into the arena. Where necessary we can install a metal detector or other crowd control devices such as access scanners or CCTV cameras.
Theft is a huge concern for any high-capacity venue. Gate security to keep track of who comes in and out is the first measure our company will take in keeping your people and property safe and secure. This allows peace of mind for anyone hoping to relax and enjoy the game as they should! Other event security officials will patrol the stadium keeping thieves and other criminals at bay. Since no one knows where a patrol officer will be, anyone wishing to commit crimes will be constantly worried about being caught. Our clients have experienced major drops of up to 20% in criminal activities on their properties after hiring our armed patrol guards.
