For the overall safety of your event security measures should be considered essential. Determining your security needs however, may not be a simple accomplishment. For instance, concerts, alcohol-related events, stunt shows or vehicle exhibitions may require more security.
During the planning process, you should estimate that you’ll need security personnel at the rate of 1 security member for every 100 people present if alcohol is available, or 1 security guard for every 300 people if alcohol is not being served. To meet these requirements, you may either contract with your own security personnel, or you may hire off-duty police officers. These security ratios are rough guidelines and may need to be adjusted due to the facts and circumstances of your event. As your event plan is developed, the Sebring Police Department will assist you with assessing your event and recommending ways that you may meet your security needs.
