A lot of clients who are planning or organising their party or events, often face this challenging question’s; ‘ how many events or party security guard do I need?’ It is a common question I have heard when it comes to events & party security hire; especially from party organisers or host.
The other challenging question that the party organisers or host get to face is; what is the cost of hiring party security guards. Yes, every one of us would like to host the best party or event possible. But so many of us are worried about the cost of party security guard hire. Whether it is worth it or not.

As a security industry professional, with so many years of experiences working in party security. I will say, it is worth it to hire a party security guard or guards for your event or party.
Sometimes I see clients who hire inadequate party security guards; for example, a party that may require 3 or more party security guards, the client may only hire one security guard. And some of the reason why they do so is; either they want to save money, or they are not aware of the exact number of party security guard they may require, or perhaps they are short of cash.
As an experienced party security guard professional, my advice to the client is; do your research on how many security guards you might require for your party. If possible ask one or two party security companies, what number of party security guards, do they think would be enough for the perceived amount of guests you will be inviting to the party.
Most party security companies may not tell you the exact number of party security guard you might require, for fear of being seen as working for the interest of their security company. So, the party security company may go with what the client wants, and not necessarily give the client an expert advise on party security.
These questions apply not just to party security; it also applies to events and events organisers.
Before concluding on the exact number of party or event security guards you might need. You may want to consider some of these factors, that could help you or the party security company arrive at the right number of security guards you might need.
A lot of party security experts may consider a ‘general rule’ of having one party security guard to a100 patrons and two or more party security guards for every 100 patrons
But, from experience, I will suggest you evaluate your party or event, think of the likelihood of what might go wrong, perhaps consider some of the above mentioned determining factors, and get the right number of event or party security guards.
