Anytime there are large gatherings of people for sporting or entertainment events, the need for security and quick response is high. For sports stadiums and arenas across the country, these are issues they deal with on a daily basis.
Keeping fans, vendors and employees safe is a top priority and taking that duty of care obligation to the next level means giving people a say in their own safety and security.
Using a real-time, location-based tool like LiveSafe, security officials can leverage what people are seeing during live events to help prevent security incidents.
For example, if a fan in the stands sees a fight in progress, the traditional way of getting security to the incident involves fans notifying an usher near their section, the usher then notifies security and security responds.
The next generation flow of information allows the fan to report the incident directly to security via the LiveSafe app, along with photos, videos, audio or text. Using LiveSafe, the security teams receive the information quicker and with more detail to allow for an effective response that may prevent escalation of incidents.
Using LiveSafe’s crowdsourced intelligence gathering to help identify and prevent incidents is a game-changing way for security teams to evolve their security procedures, especially at sports and entertainment venues.
