Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
On June 18, The Protective Group, a leading event security company, comments on an article published by the Chicago Tribune, which details how a Chicago suburb recently increased security measures for special events.
According to the article published by the Chicago Tribune, authorities in a Chicago suburb are altering security measures for major events as a result of the Boston Marathon bombings. The article says the Naperville Police Department is going to schedule more officers and increase the use of video surveillance for popular events in the area.
John Monderine, CEO of The Protective Group, says it’s important to not only put more agents on the ground, but it’s also imperative to use technology properly. “There are a lot of really great security tools out there that agencies can use, but they have to make sure they are being used in the most efficient manner,” he says. “Communication is key. There’s no point in monitoring video cameras and patrolling if the officers do not know how to effectively communicate with each other during a crisis.”
The article says the Naperville Police Dept. is also “increasing cooperation with the Naperville Fire Department as well as other local, state and federal agencies” to promote communication and ensure safety all around.
Monderine says it's usually a good idea to increase the number of security personnel at special events. In addition to local law enforcement, private security agents can also be a crucial part of your safety plan. “If you’re hosting a special event, no matter the size, it’s always good to have extra security guards on site,” he says. “Companies like us understand how to control and manage crises as discreetly as possible.”
