Dynamic Operating Environment—Public/Special Events
Public and or Special Events are typically readily accessible by the public, mass transit and vehicles traffic, they are frequented by large crowds, and they are likely considered appealing soft targets. The physical attributes, location, and operational and logistical considerations of Public/Special Events create security challenges for first responders and event stakeholders.

It is the responsibility of every employee and contractor to report suspicious activities. 

Common Public/Special Events characteristics include open-access layout and crowds of various sizes depending on time of year, type of events, and special activities, such as concerts, celebrations, and expos, with special concerns and considerations toward political venue's. Public/Special Events in the US and overseas remain potential terrorist targets based on relatively recent terrorist messaging and plots in the US. 

STAFF TRAINING: The best and most cost-effective security technique is a well-trained staff that can recognize and react appropriately to a potential or actual threat. Training should highlight the importance of security, things to look for, and what to do in the event of an incident or attack. Staff should be highly encouraged— if not rewarded—to report situations which may be suspicious, hazardous or potentially dangerous. Public/Special Events make security inherently challenging because of their size, layout, and amenities, and a trained alert staff will be better prepared to detect suspicious activity.

On-site Public/Special Events Training 

In this 3-hour course participants will learn the signs of suspicious activity along with terrorist attack planning cycle, suspicious behavior, suspicious packages and possible surveillance activities that can be associated to criminal activities including terrorism while performing their daily duties.
