When it comes to security issues, it is always a problem you cannot ignore in the community. It is every communities dream to live in peace and harmony, but unfortunately, insecurity has been the greatest threat of all our time worldwide. The biggest challenge in eradicating the issue of insecurity is that you cannot predict where threats will come from so the people who pose a danger live among us. How can we eliminate security issues? Well, the only tactic that can help us fight threats is by everyone becoming the advocate of security whereby you assume that everyone in the community is responsible for maintaining the security among the entire neighbourhood. This happens when you notice someone acting suspiciously, report him or her to the authorities so he or she can be investigated. So lets be each other's keeper, and together we can fight insecurities.
Some of the areas where security threats can be highly experienced are where there are community family day functions. The reason being, a lot of people are expected to attend, and it would be difficult to identify the individual who is a threat amongst the huge crowd. The good news is there are various measures which can be taken so as to ensure that there is sound security for people attending the family day function.
They include; Assess the function area. The first thing to do prior to the function is to ensure there is thorough research done about the area where the function will be taking place. Security police can be sent with guard dogs so they can check if there are any risks or threats in the area. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure it is important to ensure this measure is put into place.
Entrance checkups. Also, during the function day, it is important to screen the members of the public that are entering the area. Ensure there is thorough screening on what the people are carrying. There are so many digital gadgets that can be used to screen such as the walk-through metal detector.
Install surveillance equipment. Another important tip you can employ so as to ensure there is security during the family function is installing surveillance devices such as CCTV. The CCTV can monitor all the movements within the crowd, and you can be able to see if they is anyone causing trouble within the crowd.
Background check up and screening of the employed security guards. Before you hire any security people to guard during these functions, it is important to do a background check up about their work and where they have been working so as to ensure they are genuine. It is also important to ask the staff to provide you with reliable references where you can call and confirm that the people are qualified and competent people to ensure the security. Given the work required it is advisable to use a trusted company to provide the safety during the family functions day to avoid having to check up on your security staff on the day.
It is important to ensure that your community family day has enough security to ensure a great day out for all the families attending it.
