The Protective Group, a leading security company on Long Island, responds to a September 25th article published by the Baltimore Business Journal titled “Baltimore Running Festival finalizing security measures as event nears.”
Nearly 30,000 individuals are expected to participate in a variety of events during the Baltimore Running Festival on October 12th, which will include marathons, half-marathons and 5Ks. According to the article, the Baltimore Running Festival’s organizers are finalizing their event security measures. 400 Baltimore police officers and 40 security guards from the Maryland Stadium Authority will be present. There will also be additional security measures at this popular event, but these details are not public information.
After the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings in April, the city and the organizers of the event are taking security very seriously. The article cites Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports Enterprises, who notes that there will be "a number of checkpoints around the perimeter of the event’s finish area at Camden Yards. The measure would call for boosting the number of steel barriers that lace the celebration village and finish line, where at the most dense point 45,000 people are gathered."
John Monderine, CEO of the Protective Group, a leading event security company, comments on the security measures that are being put in place during the Baltimore Running Festival. “Here at The Protective Group, we are encouraged to see that the festival organizers and the city of Baltimore are taking event security very seriously. We also encourage security guards at businesses near the festival to stay alert during the event.”
