MGT-335: Event Security Planning for Public Safety Professionals

Monday and Tuesday, June 17 and 18, 2013

Bangor Police Headquarters, Bangor, Maine

Event Security Planning for Public Safety Professionals is a 16-hour course designed to educate small and rural community public safety personnel, as well as local officials, regarding security concerns and considerations involved with planning any event. The course will be taught by instructors from the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium, a Department of Homeland Security-funded program.

Security planning is a critical part of successful event preparation. This is a planning and management course designed to introduce basic principles and skills associated with organizing security for events in small communities and rural areas.

This course enables participants to recognize and plan adequate strategies and security measures to prevent or mitigate security incidents which may occur during scheduled events. The course reinforces the importance and magnitude of security planning required to execute a safe and effective event regardless of the size.

As a take-away job aid, students will receive a copy of a computer-based software tool designed especially for this course. This job aid will provide guidance to security planners in the decision making and synchronization of all security-based tasks and considerations required for developing a security outline and plan for any type of scheduled event.

Advance security considerations should be built into overall planning and management of events. Bringing together public safety and security personnel from various agencies and departments will reinforce the benefits of cross-discipline collaboration in developing security plans for any type of event.

Policy makers and event planners who attend the course will recognize the benefit of including all involved agencies and personnel on the event committee.
