Crowd control is an important public relations role that requires security officers to use communication, negotiation, problem solving and people skills.
Security officer roles for managing large crowds of people to prevent the outbreak of fights, riots, crowd crushes and other disorderly behaviour come under the crowd control banner.
When people think of crowd control, they often automatically link it to pubs and night clubs, picturing the stereotypical ‘bouncer’. Security officers in Adelaide also work crowd control roles at community festivals, public demonstrations, sporting events, music concerts or festivals, street markets, pageants and parades. The job application in this field are interesting and varied. As well as being the area of security that presents the most job opportunities, it is also a great way of proving your worth to employers and developing your security industry experience while paving the way towards your longer-term career goals.

Some events now require crowd controllers and security guards to perform bag searches or other screening functions using equipment such as metal detectors searching for items that are prohibited to enter a venue or event. Security screening and searching is quickly becoming the standard at locations following recent events including the Manchester bombings, bringing another element of skill and knowledge for security officers to master. Searching methods that are adopted are similar to those used in the aviation screening environment.
