Any good event is memorable because of the wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, or otherwise outstanding experience. No one wants their event made memorable in their guest's minds due to a negative experience. The simple inclusion of proper security services can minimize many potential security threats.
Attendees at any event want to feel safe and protected. An event officer can provide an elevated level of security just by being present at an event. The public is much more well-behaved when they are accountable for their actions and most petty crimes committed are actually crimes of opportunity. If a table of ladies excuse themselves from a dinner table to grab a cocktail, for example, likely one or more of those women will leave a purse, clutch, or phone neatly tucked under a napkin. A lazy thief could easily slip by, unnoticed, and grab the unattended item. This lazy thief will also notice the event officer fastidiously standing in the room and will likely think better of his actions. The very presence of an officer in the room can prevent threats from even beginning. The officer did not have to address the would-be criminal, he did not have to make a scene, and did not have to draw any attention to himself. The fact he was standing in the room was enough to protect his attendees.
When a potential threat does need addressing, having a designated officer trained in dealing with hundreds of situations effectively and efficiently will neutralize most situations much faster. Also, when attendees notice a potential situation they easily know whom to inform when an event officer is present. Without that presence, it is often hard to know who an attendee can inform that will have the power, training, and effectiveness to deal with a potential situation.
