Just finished the ESI Special Event security course. The students are great, and they are ready to take on your special event security needs. As arenas and stadiums are upgrading their security to meet the every changing threats and security requirements, these students understand the new and existing threats, and how to use both technology as well as training to increase their security posture. In this course we also taught the students how to read crowds and how to recognize aggression that some people will show, and defuse the problem prior to them causing and incident. We need to understand ways to prevent incidents from happening, rather than just responding to incidents.
