What is crowd control?

Crowd control involves the presence of highly trained security guards to manage large numbers of people. The service is designed to prevent any form of trouble that can arise when a crowd forms in a confined space. Anything from rowdiness, disorderly conduct and fighting to crowd crushes and affray.

Your crowd might be the result of:

  •       a planned event (such as a music festival, sporting event or party)
  •       the nature of your business (with regular crowds forming at shopping centres or airports)
  •       a spontaneous event (such as incident gatherings or unplanned protests)

Whatever type of crowd you’re facing, the presence of security guards is integral to ensure nothing gets out of hand.


Why is crowd control necessary?

Crowd control is always going to be critical if you’re anticipating large numbers of people in the one space. This is to ensure that your facility:

  •       Keeps all patrons as safe as possible
  •       Complies with state-based work health and safety legislation
  •       Maintains its reputation as a safe and welcoming services provider

FAQs about our crowd control service

Yes. All of our security officers are properly licenced by the Western Australian Police Force under the Security and Related Activities (Control) Act 1996 (WA). All crowd control officers we employ have a Crowd Controller’s Licence, which can only be obtained after the completion of an approved training course, a written exam, a First Aid Certificate and a Certificate II in Security Operations.

No. They can only make a citizens’ arrest (just like any other member of the public).

There are a number of tactics you can execute to ensure your crowd control strategy keeps everybody safe.

Help people find their way. At events, people want to know where they’re going. Regular attendees might know the way, but others might not. A good crowd control strategy involves minimising the chaos of people looking around wondering where to go – not just with guards, but with appropriate signage.

Maintain a steady flow. Managing people’s movement throughout your venue is vital to reducing chaos. The right strategy involves the proper creation of barriers to ensure people keeping moving consistently in the right direction.

We generally recommend at least two security guards per 100 people. However, you may need more depending on the situation depending on the nature of the event, the unique risks present on-site and the crowd demographics.

We recommend getting in touch with our security professionals directly to know exactly how many guards is best for your circumstances.
