Whether large crowds are a permanent feature of your commercial life or not, one thing remains to be done if you have not already done so. For starters, you need specially installed crowd control fencing. It is specially installed only by professionals in crowd control and, very importantly, security. A variety of fences are built and prepared to suit all settings, circumstances and occasions. Now, most responsible businesses have already taken care of this next measure.
They have installed a specially recruited security team. But the most modest form of physical security for any commercial premises, large or small, is that of the lone uniformed security guard. He is uniformed, just like any other law enforcement agency official would be, to attract and serve notice to any potential intruders that he is on guard. Even with a decent and loyal patrol dog, together with his pepper spray and baton, he is still in a lot of danger.
What can one man do under attack in numbers? Even if he is legally allowed and professionally qualified to carry a firearm, he still has his back up against the wall. No, no matter how small your business is, do consider all implications and always strive for maximum security, no matter what the cost. The cost of losing your business and losing lives is just so much greater. Responsible business owners will be opting for a good mix of security provisions.
Assuming large crowds on a regular basis, he will have crowd control fencing taken care of. This would be of huge help to the lone security guard. But his services are no longer required. In his place is the elite crack squad of highly efficient security officials, all experienced in combat and danger situations.
