Event Security Tips

Event Security – Are you planning an outdoor event?

Here are 6 key considerations to ensure your event is safe and fun for everyone.

1. Hire an Onsite Security Guard Service

Hiring an onsite security guard service helps keep your event safe in many ways. The presence of security guards often serves as a deterrent to criminal activity. An event security guard service provides professional guards to patrol the grounds, monitor activity and provide crowd management keeping your event safe and fun.

2. Understand the Potential Hazards of the Event Site

Prior to the event, a visit to the site will help you visualize any possible problem areas that are potentially a danger to your visitors. You should be aware of natural hazards like ponds or rivers. Verify that the lighting is adequate and can be patrolled by your security service.

3. Ensure all proper permits and licenses are obtained and local and/or state authorities are aware you are planning an event.
If something terrible befalls your event, the authorities/emergency will be prepared to respond. It’s also preferable to ask your onsite event security service to work with these local entities so that all teams are in communication and ready to spring into action if necessary.

4. Create Boundaries

Rope off restricted areas and post signage regarding trespassing. Clearly mark designated walking areas and block off the areas you want to maintain as restricted. You can manage the traffic flow of attendees in and out of your event safely by letting them know how to navigate the event.

5. Parking Lot Patrol

Your onsite security guard can offer parking lot guidance for your event. If you are expecting a large attendance for the event, having a professional onsite event security guard service in place will ensure order and safety.

6. Have an Emergency Plan in Place

Be prepared for anything. Remember Murphy’s Law “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” Have an emergency plan in place that will handle the worst possible scenario so that your event is ready for anything.

Absolute Investigative and Security Services can ensure that your event is properly prepared and protected. Call us today and let us give you the security and peace of mind you need!

WHAT IS SKIPTRACING?

skiptracing

Have you heard of skiptracing? Let’s say, for the moment, that you never knew your father…but you’ve grown into a successful prodigy, and you have decided that now is the time to track him down. You have no idea what his phone number might be, or where he might be living, or whom he calls friends. You’ve asked around, but nobody has anything valuable to offer you. You’re no closer to finding him today than you were yesterday or the day before, and the search is becoming exhaustive. You’re beginning to lose hope. But then, you hear about skiptracing.

Skiptracing is the process of collecting and analyzing information to locate someone who has “skipped” town “without a trace.” There are plenty of things that you can do to get this process started on your own, but you may find it a valuable timesaver to recruit the services of a private investigative agency to help you.

The process of searching for a lost soul has been greatly expedited with the advancement of technology. Though a basic web search may initially yield fruitless, P.I.’s have direct access to records, material, databases, etc. that you might not have direct access. Skiptracing utilizes all available information to track down a subject, rather than just the public information (i.e. web searches).

In cases where the subject of a skiptrace doesn’t want to be found, often they will go out of their way to avoid releasing any public information. However, in today’s world, it’s impossible to live comfortably or naturally without leaving some trail. Credit cards, phone records, tax records, background checks, employment history, and utility bills can all be analyzed to find patterns.

For example, if the subject is found to have worked for employer A, Employer B, and employer C, in that order, then the subject is likely to be living closest to employer C. Given that, if employer C pays minimum wage, then certain parts of the area can be eliminated…you wouldn’t expect the subject to be living in a five-star-condo on minimum wage, now, would you? These sorts of patterns in private records can be cross-referenced with equal and opposite public records to find a single pattern that is ultimately used to follow the subject all the way back to his/her functional homestead.

Skiptracing is a valuable tool that has completely changed the game for search and recovery missions. Working hand-in-hand with either the police or a private investigation agency, you can track down virtually anyone, anywhere, at any time. If they’re out there, they can be found with patience, commitment, and skiptracing.

WHAT IS A CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK?

CriminalBGCheck

Have you ever taken on a new job or responsibility, and found your employment pending on what your potential employer called a “criminal background check”? Never fear; this is not a subtle way of denying you the position. In fact, it’s a fairly common practice for businesses to run background checks on all employees, both new and old alike.

A criminal background check involves an extensive search through multiple records and databases to identify any criminal records, sex offender records, arrest history, citizenship, litigation records, and driving records. In some cases, particularly for positions within the federal or state governments or positions which require a good deal of paid driving time, these records may influence the employer’s decision to hire you.

If you are waiting for an employer to proceed with a background check, it may take 1-4 business days. This is because the employer must take the necessary time to go through the proper legal channels to obtain your personal records, as mandated by the business or corporation that he/she serves. Positions within the federal or state governments will require a much more thorough background check, incorporating not only your criminal history, but also your travel logs, habits & practices, frequented expenses, and financial records. This particular process can take much longer; even up to a month, if there is an extensive amount of data to study. However, for a more general search, the actual background check itself can take as little as fifteen minutes for a search and fifteen minutes for compilation/organization of the results. Most of the time delay takes place when transferring the records from the facility that has searched and compiled your information to the place of your potential employment.

A criminal background check is nothing to fear. Employers want to be aware of any legal difficulties that their employees have had in the past or are having currently, so as to make the best choices for the mutual benefit of both the business and the employee. In fact, if you are asked to submit to a criminal background check shortly after a job interview, it is likely a sign that the business is interested in hiring you.
