A Template for Mass Event Security

Techniques for securing large public events are becoming standardized, so much so that Wellesley Consulting Services in Toronto, Canada, offers a “Mass Event Security Template” for the guidance of event security planners.

An event security plan, notes Wellesley, should have these five elements: Barriers/Buffer Zones; Surveillance, both electronic and human; Accreditation/Access Control, Showing Force and Communications.

Wellesley’s Web summary of an event security plan is detailed enough to provide the basis for a real-time plan if you’ve got an upcoming event that will draw large numbers of people. Definitely worth some scrutiny.
