Event GUARD Services (EGS), the Event Security and Crowd Management Specialists is excited to announce its two- year contract renewal with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), a client since 2010.

Basketball games will be played at the Thunderdorm, an indoor facility holding over 5,600 spectators. With an impressive list of former students including Gwyneth Paltrow, Michael Douglas and Steve Aoki, UCSB events are sure to captivate a future generation of megastars.

“Event Guard Services added an element to our athletic events that we were looking for. They are professional, courteous and flexible with their services. Their staff is friendly and works well with our fans. Most importantly, they have the experience [needed when] dealing with large crowds,” says Bob Brontsema, Assistant Athletic Director University of California, Santa Barbara-UCSB

Another significant addition to the California market is the one-year renewal of the contract with the University of Southern California (USC), a client since 2009. EGS’s elite division, the “Off Duty Group” will continue to provide Loss Prevention, Asset Protection, Access Control and Cash Protection for all merchandise booths of home football games. The division of law enforcement -the “Off Duty Group”- provides security services by armed and/or unarmed, off duty and/or retired Police Officers.

“Working with EGS has added a feature that I consider priceless. When you have almost 100,000 people on game days utilizing your operations, [knowing] that the operation is being heavily monitored [by EGS] is a great feeling. Meeting Kelly Martin and forging a relationship with Event GUARD Services several years back was one of the smartest business moves I could make. I’m so glad to consider them a partner, and part of our team,” says Nichelle Huizar, Senior Associate Director University of Southern California-USC

The University of Northern Colorado (UNC), a client since 2012 has also signed a one-year extension to their contract with Event GUARD Services.

“I’ve been working with Event GUARD Services for 2 years now and could not be happier with the quality of service that has been provided. I’ve worked with multiple event security companies in my tenure at the University of Northern Colorado but Event GUARD Services has impressed me the most. I’m looking forward to continuing our partnership with all of UNC’s future athletic events,” says Kyle Tiernan, Assistant Athletic Director, University of Northern Colorado-UNC

Last but not least, EGS would like to welcome the addition of the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) to its distinguished client list. 2014 marks the beginning of what is sure to be a long and lasting relationship with this important institution. With over 12 sports ranging from football to tennis, and over 17,000 students enrolled, the safety and security of events at the University of Central Oklahoma are of eminent significance to Event GUARD Services.
