Door security makes you feel safe. Regardless of whether you are at a festival, a nightclub or a corporate event the knowledge that the doors are secured and they are keeping certain people out reassures us that we, on the inside are safe.
Subconsciously we only really feel protected when the person protecting is bigger than us – it links back to the theory of evolution when only the strongest survived. This is why; at least in the majority of cases door supervisors have a big, slightly intimidating appearance. Let’s face it, if they didn’t how would criminals or troublemakers have any respect for who they are or what they do.
The demand for security has recently increased quite considerably as people fear more for their safety. Events that previously wouldn’t have needed door security do now have it as a precautionary measure to make sure that the premises stay secure and the guests stay safe.
Door supervisors should be smart professionals who always maintain and represent the company ethos. There comes a point as well where local people will know the door staff if they are around often enough. This encourages good behaviour in young people out and about if they feel they have a personal connection to an individual, it also increases how safe they feel – knowing that there is someone there if they need them compared to perhaps a policeman who may take 15-20 minutes to get to the scene.
Door staff have medical training and so can play a critical part in an emergency situation not only medicinally but also to maintain order among crowds that may gather when an episode such as this occurs.
Simply put, without door supervision there would be a less secure atmosphere at events, clubs and bars. Their presence is reassuring and we all know that when they are there people will be calmer and less likely to cause trouble, mainly because there will be repercussions. If you’re interested in door security then do get in touch, we would love to help you out and let you and your guests feel more comfortably safe in the environment that you are providing.
