Previously released as Special Events Security, this series has been enhanced to address the expanding and evolving training needs of the security industry. This four-part series introduces the security officer to many unique factors that need to be considered when securing a public or special event. Developed to provide exposure to the management and "big picture" functions required to efficiently manage public events; each module gives the security officer insight into how he or she fits into the strategic security plan.In keeping up to date on current issues, topics covered in this series illuminate the challenges officers must consider in the areas of security, terrorism and "critical incident management." These issues include weapons of mass destruction (WMD), mass casualties, and the role the private security officer plays in the Incident Command System (ICS).

Other topics in this series cover crowd control, pre-event planning, radio operations, traffic management, and medical planning. Excerpts from the landmark City of Cincinnati's Task Force on Crowd Control and Safety are also examined in detail.
Each student will receive a Record of Training at the end of these programs. The student may then purchase an IFPO Certificate of Completion for $10.00 for each individual module, or for $10.00 purchase one certificate upon achieving the complete series.
