Security Guards For Council Events Victoria

Security Guards For Council Events Victoria / Event Security Melbourne

Providing security to Local Council events, regional festivals, broadcast concert events, street festivals as well as some of the largest Festivals in Victoria is a serous commitment from our company.

Security and crowd control planning

With such a strong emphasis on risk management and public safety at events, appropriate security is paramount.

Different types (and scale) of events require different levels of security and this should be determined as part of the event’s Risk Assessment and detailed in the Emergency Management Plan.

The number of security staff needed will depend on the number of patrons. The general rule is two security guards for the first 100 patrons and then one guard for every 100 patrons, however there may also be ratios that are specified via Liquor Licensing Victoria.

The risk assessment will also inform the stake holders as to what the risk levels are at certain times and in certain areas and what ‘type’ of guard you may need to reduce the risk, i.e. Licensed crowd controller with an Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) qualifications.

Our security professionals will contact you to define the specific roles of security staff, how many are needed for how many hours and their general positions within the site.

The number of security staff, their role and position on site might be determined for you by the Police and/or the Building Surveyor, depending on the nature of your event.

The attitude of our security personnel are friendly and professional at all times, with the main responsibilities being crowd control, cash and equipment protection.

  • First aid Officers

Reference for Corrective Services Pty Ltd 

I have engaged the services of Corrective Services Pty Ltd in my capacity as Director of The Nightjar Festival in Torquay and Geelong. This is a festival that attracted from 5,000 in Geelong to over 15,000 patrons in Torquay.  Nightjar is a licensed festival with red lined areas. The large space was fenced around its perimeter, which needed patrolling for fence jumping.

We had tried several security companies before this, finding them unsatisfying. After engaging Corrective Services Pty Ltd we were impressed with their professionalism and non-confronting attitude of the company. The guards were approachable and proactive in resolving issues that arose.

I found Corrective Services Pty Ltd to be very supportive and a caring business that were there for us above and beyond what was required of them.  I am grateful for their support over the four years we worked with Grant and his team at Corrective Services Pty Ltd.

I have engaged the services of Corrective Services Pty Ltd in my capacity as Directress of Moon Mother Productions for over 10 years. They have been involved in a lot of varying festivals & events ranging from major Sports Events like Amy’s Gran Fondo in Lorne, Torquay Anzac Day and major events across Melbourne for both Councils and Private organisations & Event Companies.

The capacity of these events have ranged from 1,000 to 20,000 people. in Geelong to over 15,000 patrons in Torquay.

We use several security companies in this capacity throughout Melbourne and have found Corrective Services Pty Ltd to be as good if not better.
Grant has always been very supportive and thorough with his approach to our events whether he has dealt directly with us or direct with my clients.

Moon Mother will continue to work with Grant and his team at Corrective Services Pty Ltd.

Kind Regards
