SGC Security Services is a member of the United Kingdom Crowd Management Association (UKCMA), which represents critical commercial organisations whose primary business is providing management and crowd safety security services and solutions, meaning that the Crowd Safety management team along with SGC Security Services have been fully audited for their compliance and professional ability in managing crowds at an event.


Being in a crowd presents an unusual amount of different behaviours in people. For instance, people act in groups in ways that they wouldn’t operate independently. This mentality can lead to a disastrous situation if experienced Crowd Safety Management teams, security, and stewards are not kept in check.

As a result of this behaviour, a robust plan is imperative to avoid problems escalating and getting out of control. The team at SGC Security Services can advise and put into place the following to ensure your event operates without any issues and within the licensing objectives:

  • Local Authority and Safety Advisory Group planning
  • Risk Assessments and operational planning
  • Communication to key stakeholders
  • Training and delivering of all crowd safety qualifications 
  • Crowd Safety Management Planning


Effective Crowd Management helps to ensure the Health & Safety of those at an event, from the guests to your staff and the overall event type. Anyone at an event should be able to enjoy the experience without having to worry about their Health & Safety; choosing the right partner forms a large part of the success of any event.

Poorly managed Crowd Control can be disastrous; people can be injured, lives can be lost if an event is poorly managed, and sanctions can be imposed for poor event management and crowd safety planning. Over the years, there have been high profile instances that have highlighted what can go wrong if an event is not planned or managed correctly.

The senior management team at SGC Security Services has over 50 years of experience managing events and crowds, supported by Managing Director Paul Macarthur, an industry advisor in Crowd Safety.

We can control and manage crowds of all sizes, day or night, across LondonKentEssex, Cambridge or Hertfordshire.
