How Many Off-Duty Officers Do You Need For Your Event?

When hiring Security Off-Duty Officers, there are a lot of variables to consider when it comes to choosing the right number that is needed. We look for the volume of people, the size of the area needing to be covered, if there are multiple entrances and exits type of event or business.

These are all key elements into seeing how many Security Officers are needed for your task, the bigger the magnitude the higher the risk. It is suggested that you have at least 1 Security Officer per 50 people.  

For example, let us say you are hosting a grand opening and expecting 150 guests to show up and 2 entrances, this would require a total of 3 Officers. It is suggested to have one at each entrance and one to patrol inside. Security Officers can be used for many things, not just for your large events, big corporate buildings, and apartment complex.

We often see construction sites too, where equipment is left unattended throughout the day or night. They can assist in making sure it is left alone and not tampered with. 

Not only will hiring off duty police officers for your event or business bring you peace of mind, but it will also protect what matters most to you. Hiring any type of security can be complex and at times it’s hard to understand what you need for your business or event. We will not only walk you through the steps of hiring off-duty police officers, but we will also ensure that your event runs as smoothly as possible.
