Planning a large BBQ this summer? Planning on celebrating your recent graduate or hosting a family reunion? Have you thought about adding security to your plans? If not, here are a few reasons you should:

Eliminate party crashers – If you are thinking about holding your BBQ in a park or other public space, the threat unwelcome guests prevails. Hiring security deters the public from wandering into your party and disrupting your event.

Securing belongings ­­– Outdoor gatherings in public spaces are a perfect opportunity for thieves. Make sure someone is keeping an eye on all purses, bags, gift bags and other belongings while you enjoy the party.

Safety first – If you are planning on holding a large gathering that includes children, it can be difficult to keep an eye on everyone at all times. Parties that include equipment, such as inflatable bounce houses, run the risk of injury. Security guards will keep an eye on children and make sure safe practices are initiated while they are playing on party equipment.

Meet HOA requirements – Thinking about holding your party in a public space in your community? Many Home Owner’s Associations (HOA) require a security guard be present during large parties. Be sure to check with your HOA before hosting your event.
