Event & Venue Security
Sports stadiums face a wide range of threats, from unruly fans and vandalism to injuries, accidents, demonstrations and terrorist attacks.
Our security experts have conducted security assessments of professional and college sports stadiums across the country. We work with on-site security professionals to ensure the venues are adequately secured, procedures are up-to-date, and personnel are trained to respond to potential risks.

Failure to conduct screening and background investigations can cause embarrassment, costly litigation, and undue media attention.
We conduct comprehensive, discreet and timely investigations to validate and verify resumes. To conduct a basic background check, we:
- Interview key individuals

- Search civil and criminal records
