Security Services For Christmas Events


"Our goal is to guarantee that Christmas events run smoothly without jeopardising the security of guests or the venue."

After booking venues and acquiring all the necessary resources to run an event, the next thing to consider is the safety and security of everyone attending that event. Therefore, Metropolitan Security Services works together with event planners to provide bespoke security services for Christmas events. Our goal is to guarantee that Christmas events run smoothly without jeopardising the security of guests or the venue. For this reason, we consult and work closely with event planners to design and provide a customised security solution that attends to every security detail of a Christmas event. 


Get in touch now and consult with our Christmas event security experts for free. They will assist you with the protocols required to secure your Christmas event venue, as well as detailed reports of all security measures required to guarantee the 100% protection and safety of everyone attending your Christmas event. 


Why do you need adequate security at Christmas events?

Christmas events are special; they bring people together in the spirit of love, celebrations, and reunions. For businesses, companies can organise events to commemorate their achievements and successes made throughout the year. Employees would have opportunities to relate to their employers on a personal level and exchange gifts and presents. As for families’ and friends’ small get-togethers, events can be organised for people to reunite, share love, exchange presents, and celebrate. Likewise, communities, organizations, and societies can organise Christmas events to celebrate and share the love that comes with the festive season. It is a good thing when people come together for celebrations, but joyous celebrations can turn into chaotic, dreadful events in the absence of adequate security. 


Controlling anti-social behaviours influenced by alcohol at Christmas events

Not everyone will be able to maintain courteous behaviour while under the influence of alcohol at events where alcohol is available. After a few drinks, some people can tend toward anti-social behaviors, which can be harmful to them or the surrounding people at a Christmas event. For example, standing, dancing, and singing on top of tables and chairs can result in unexpected injuries. Unnecessary shouting and altercations can disrupt the smooth flow of a Christmas event. Minor misunderstandings can lead to violent physical fights, which might tarnish the entire event. There are countless anti-social behaviours that people engage in under the influence of alcohol. In worst-case scenarios, people can be aggressive and abusive after drinking a few drinks of alcohol, and others can tend toward vandalism, which leads to the destruction of property. 

Situation Control  

Metropolitan security guards will take sole responsibility for preventing altercations, arguments, and misunderstandings. Detecting, identifying, monitoring, and controlling any anti-social behaviours that can cause potential harm or injury to anyone attending a Christmas event is one of the primary duties of security guards. All our security guards are SIA licensed, insured, qualified, experienced, and certified to control and manage any security-threatening situation that might arise at a Christmas event. Metropolitan security officers are professionally trained to use their emotional intelligence and excellent interpersonal skills to deal with and eliminate every security issue with as little disruption as possible to the event. Besides protecting and guaranteeing the safety and protection of everyone attending an event, Metro Security Guards will take every precaution necessary to secure the event venue and its properties. Our security guards will protect your Christmas event venue from physical or vandalism-related damage. 


Securing VIP areas, car parks, access control, and guest assistance

metro security guards duties at Christmas events

Depending on the nature of the event, it may be necessary to secure the VIP areas. For example, if live bands, DJs, inspirational speakers, or musicians are part of a Christmas event, their security must be a priority. At Metropolitan Security Services, part of our packages includes special security solutions for special guests attending Christmas events. This means we take full responsibility for protecting your special guests as well as total access control to VIP areas. Get in touch now and learn more about VIP security solutions for Christmas events. 


Assisting guests with directions, disseminating information about the event, and attending to guests immediately when they need assistance are part of the primary duties carried out by metro security guards at Christmas events. Security guards’ primary responsibilities at Christmas events include escorting guests to and from parking areas, managing vehicles in parking areas, and securing exiting and entrance points. Depending on the specific nature of your Christmas event security, we design security services to attend to every security detail while ensuring 100% safety and protection of your venue and attendees. 


The guest checklist, theft control, and ticketed entries

Uninvited guests can take part in unacceptable activities that can disrupt an event. Event planners must have enough security measures to ensure that only invited guests attend their events. Event planners can create guest checklists and make use of security guards to authorise and validate invitations at events. In cases of large or public events where the ticket system applies, Metro security guards will inspect tickets to ensure only authorised people are attending an event. 

When a Christmas event is hosted at a lavish venue, some guests and attendees might engage in stealing utilities and other stuff. The presence of security guards at an event will prevent anyone from attempting to steal anything. Security officers will actively monitor and control theft and any unusual activities at Christmas events. Depending on the type of your specific event, security guards will play different crucial roles to guarantee the smooth flow of everything. Get in touch and consult with our Christmas event security experts for free. They will assist you with guaranteed security solutions designed to satisfy your needs. The Metropolitan Security Services team is determined to make sure your Christmas events are filled with complete peace of mind, love, and happiness.

    Festive Season Security Guards

    Festive Season Security guards

    festive season security

    Most criminals take advantage of the festive season’s commotion to victimise their targeted businesses and individuals. Given that most people will have lots of money to spend on valuable gifts to share the love of the holiday spirit that comes with Christmas, petty thieves and robbers have a reason to take advantage of any vulnerable businesses and individuals to get away with their crimes. It is necessary for you to protect your loved ones, homes, and businesses during the holiday. Whether you intend to leave your home vacant while on a holiday trip to spend quality time with your loved ones or you intend to close your business for the holiday season, whatever the case, you must never leave your property and assets exposed to any threat or harmful environment. 


    For years at Metropolitan Security Services, we have provided first-class festive season security guards to safeguard and protect properties and businesses throughout the Christmas holiday. We have maintained a reputation for excellence by working closely with clients to provide bespoke commercial and residential festive season security solutions in London and the surrounding areas. 


    we provide top notch first class festive season security guards

    Commercial Security Services for the Festive Season

    While some local businesses like restaurants, retailers, lodges, and hotels become more active during the Christmas holidays, others like construction, schools, and warehouses are likely to close down for the holiday season. Every business, whether active or inactive, must be protected for the following reasons: 

    1) crowd control while shopping 

    The holiday season is characterised by massive shopping, which means retailers will have to deal with huge numbers of people moving in and out of their stores. Without proper monitoring, shopping crowds can be chaotic. For this reason, it is necessary for retailers to hire professional, SIA-licensed security guards to assist, control, and monitor shopping crowds. Besides thieves, who usually take advantage of crowds to steal from shops, the presence of security guards in store means you will have someone to inspect, detect, and monitor the unusual behaviours of certain individuals within certain shopping crowds and take precise action to protect your business. 

    2) Quality customer service 

    We know how our security guards will be seen as visible, trusted members of your staff. As a result, our local holiday security guards are trained to use their emotional intelligence and excellent interpersonal skills to identify any customer in need of assistance and to provide it. By immediately engaging and attending to customers, disseminating information, and providing directions where necessary, security guards will create a great customer experience and a safe, healthy environment for your store during the busy holiday season. We only provide security guards who have all of the necessary certifications, licences, insurance, qualifications, and expertise to provide 24 hour protection for your business at Metropolitan Security Services. 

    Businesses that close for the holidays

    in addition to technological devices

    If you’re running a local business in Haringey that closes during the holiday, it is necessary that you have proper security protocols in place to safeguard your business and its valuable assets. Using technological security devices such as CCTVs, surveillance cameras, motion detectors, and activating alarms are some of the best options. However, if you want to secure your business with 100% guaranteed protection, these devices alone will not suffice. You will need a security guard to monitor, maintain, operate, and imminently respond and attend to any security alert from these devices in your absence. 

    Besides having manned security guards stationed at your business premises, mobile patrols can be a perfect alternative for any business willing to have their premises guarded on a lower budget. To deter criminals, our mobile patrol security officers will regularly visit your business premises in full uniform and marked security vehicles. They will physically perform a thorough inspection of any security breach and take any necessary action to ensure your company’s complete protection. Our alarm response team has managed to adhere to the policy of responding to every security occurrence as soon as possible, even on short notice, and they are capable of responding to any security emergency 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During your holiday vacation, you must never worry about responding to late-night duty calls, responding to alarms, or inspecting any cameras. We provide the best, first-class key holding service for Haringey businesses. For extra protection, we offer top-notch security dogs and professional dog handlers. Get in touch now and consult with our holiday season security guard experts for free. You will receive free security and risk assessment for your company, as well as a detailed report outlining every security measure required to ensure your company’s complete protection.  

    Residential Security Services for the Festive Season 

    During the holiday season, not only businesses and commercial services require safety and protection, but also vacant properties, estates, and residential communities must be protected from any potential threat or harmful environment. Anyone who will leave their homes to spend quality time with their loved ones during the holidays may find that their house is a vulnerable target for burglars to break into. Someone will have to keep a close eye on their properties in their absence, respond to alarms, deter, and monitor any potential criminal activities on these properties. For larger estates and residential communities, there would be a lot of movement as people would be visiting family, friends, and loved ones to share the love that comes with the Christmas spirit. This is a good opportunity for criminals to blend in, penetrate, and exploit vulnerable households. Which necessitates the services of estate managers to prioritise the security and protection of every resident, and these can be guaranteed by hiring professional security personnel with exceptional experience and adequate knowledge to identify, monitor, control, and eliminate every potential crime and any related activity without affecting the peace and security of any residents within the environment.
