Cost of Event Security

Posted by Jan Harris on Monday, March 25, 2019 Under: Guest Security Articles
When looking into hiring an event security staff, there are a number of variables that you must consider in order to determine what your cost is going to be. Before we start taking a look at those variables, I would like to make a statement.



When you are throwing an event, having a qualified and extremely effective security force on site is very important. Not only are you putting your reputation on the line but you are also making yourself personally responsible for the safety of all of the individuals who attend your event. This means that it is probably not going to be in your best interest to look for the cheapest service around. After all, you get what you pay for.

Now, let's take a look at some of the variables that will be considered when determining the cost of hiring event security.

1. What kind of event is this going to be?

This is always the first thing you need to consider. Obviously, the type of protection you will need at a concert is going to be different than what you will need at a corporate party.

2. How many people are you expecting to attend your event?

The number of people that are going to be attending your event will determine how many uniformed agents you will need on site.

3. Will you need traffic control?

If you need traffic control agents at your event, you can expect to pay a bit more. Traffic control agents are specially trained and require a bit more pay. Its certainly worth it though.

4. Do you need armed agents?

Armed agents are highly trained expert individuals who will usually have a very strong law enforcement or military background. Expect to get what you pay for here; or pay for what you get.

These are the top 4 variables that will be considered when exposing what your overall cost is going to be.

Again, please remember that you are hiring trained professionals. The cheaper the cost, the lower quality service you will receive. I realize that this is not always true; however, in the case of event security it most certainly is.
