Nightclub Security Service

Posted by Joyce Miller on Monday, July 29, 2019, In : Nightclub Security 
SECURITY'S ROLE

The job of club security is to protect the club’s founder, inventory, employees and guests, as well as to prevent any criminal activity within the club, and to immediately notify the authorities of any wrongdoing.



If one of the employees is having an issue with a guest, you always side with the employee.

If the club has a Head Door Supervisor, he or she is the one who decides who gets into the club, that’s not the role of other security members, nor are they paid for that.

Qualities Needed To Be A Good Door Supervisor

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Door Supervisors 
Working as a Door Supervisor can be a rewarding job. If you can communicate well with people it makes the job a lot easier. Gone are the days of the old bouncer throwing people out for no reason and acting like a school bully. Being firm but fair is the right approach to have. Smiling at people as they approach the venue and a simple greeting goes a long way. It puts people at ease and makes you approachable. A Door Supervisor is there to make sure people have a good time, to keep order which...

Qualities To Look For When Hiring Door Supervisors

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Door Supervisors 
The security staff is an important component of your venue staff. Club security or door supervisors have long been hired for their larger-than-life size and their physical intimidation factor. Owners hoped that by hiring huge body builders, they would reduce the number of incidents because people would be afraid to mess with them.



That theory is changing somewhat as more bars and clubs look for improved communication and problem-solving skills in security personnel. An  effective door supervis...

How Many Door Supervisors Should You Have At Your Premises?

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Door Supervisors 
A strong security team can help keep your premises safe and secure during opening hours and when closed. If you want to protect your premises with trained security personnel, then you should make sure that you have enough employees to man entrances and exits and other areas of your business that require guarding.



How many exits and entrances do you have?

When deciding how many door supervisors your business needs, you should first look at numbers of entrances and exits your premises has. Pubs, ...

Door Supervisors Warrington, Liverpool, Merseyside

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Door Supervisors 
Door Supervisors need to have good verbal communication, people skills, and the ability to defuse any situation. Be able to look after themselves and the customers in the premises they are looking after. In my experience, height and looking intimidating isn't a key factor in being a good door supervisor. Having good communication skills and being able to look after the customers in the premises is more important.



Having good door supervisors looking after a venue makes the customer experience ...

Dealing With Door Supervisors

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Dealing With Door Supervisors 
Be polite and calm and respectful. The door supervisors have been standing in the cold for hours. They have been speaking to people like you for hours. They are tired and bored and they have heard it all before. Nothing you can say will surprise a doorman. Also, they have all the power. You have none. You can win an argument with a doorman and he still won’t let you in. So be nice to the door supervisors.



Make an effort with your appearance. Girls, dress up and put some make-up on. Boys, try...

Becoming A Door Supervisor

Posted by Howard Trott on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Becoming A Door Supervisor 
Door Supervisors and Door Stewards, sometimes called bouncers, judge the suitability of people entering licensed premises and uphold security. They also maintain order and safeguard the well-being of customers on the premises. When working inside a venue they may be referred to as floor supervisors.



In large venues they may use queue management techniques to avoid crushing and queue jumping. Body searches may also be carried out and may involve the use of metal detectors to deter the carrying ...

Static Guarding

Static guards or security officers protect property, assets, or people. Often they are uniformed and maintain a high visibility presence to deter illegal and inappropriate actions. They observe either directly or by watching video cameras for signs of crime, fire or disorder, reporting any incidents as appropriate. In certain cases we may recommend that mobile patrols work in conjunction with static guards to ensure adequate back-up facilities.

Being a better door supervisor (part four)

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Friday, October 13, 2017, In : Door Supervisors 
A doorman will very often have only a few seconds to weigh up a situation before they need to react in some way. Reacting in the correct way is obviously fundamental to being a good door supervisor – in order to do that, you need to be able to understand the type of situation that is occurring.



A good way to do this is to have a mental gauge of the various degrees of trouble you are confronted with. For example:

A level 1 situation could be a low threat incident where the patron is asked to l...

Being a better door supervisor (part three)

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Friday, October 13, 2017, In : Door Supervisors 
You should be well aware of the type of crowd you are dealing with, and the differences in crowd on a nightly basis. More generally, has there been an influx of a certain type of group – say drunken lads watching the football, or a stag party. A hen night can be equally as boisterous at times.



Be careful not to prejudice unfairly, however you need to be aware of how the crowd is behaving. Preventing any issues before they occur is always the best policy.

And this one is an extension of knowin...

Being a better door supervisor (part two)

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Friday, October 13, 2017, In : Door Supervisors 
Where possible and when appropriate, the back exit is often the best to use.



Not only is it less crowded to take the patron out via the back exit, it also stops other customers from seeing the problems taking place and potentially put off those waiting in line from entering.

A good door supervisor will be able to look around the bar and be able to judge approximately how close to full capacity it actually is. Furthermore, in large clubs the establishment should be recording just how many patron...

Being a better door supervisor (part one)

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Friday, October 13, 2017, In : Door Supervisors 
A good door supervisor is completely aware of their surroundings. If you are new to a job and therefore establishment, take time to learn where all the exits are – including those that are generally off limits to patrons.



While working, you should always know where you are on the floor in relation to these exits. If trouble starts, you cannot be looking around trying to get your bearings when a drunken troublemaker is attempting to shove a glass in your face.

You should also know how busy the...

The most important thing is to keep your customers safe. If you are opening a cheap drink, rap dancing, under twenty five club, your out of your mind. (my opinion of course) But if you do, security is going to be a major issue. If you don’t, security is still an important issue. You can’t hire people off the street that do not know how to handle people and problems in this type of atmosphere.

Individual Factors That Can Increase Risk.

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Wednesday, January 18, 2017, In : Skills For Security

Such as:

  • The relative size, build, weight, age and physical health of the individual will impact on the potential for complications to occur. Obesity presents increased risk in horizontal restraints.

You may have already seen the process of dynamic risk assessment using your Door Supervision Training. This can be applied to reduce the risk of assault in a situation.



1. Step back - Don't rush into an intervention - is it really necessary? If you have to account for your actions, then you need to be able to show a clear justification for how you approached the situation.

The Skills Of A Door Supervisor

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Saturday, April 2, 2016, In : Skills For Security 

It takes a certain kind of person to work as a doorman. In my time I've seen them all, so-called big hard men who go missing when a bad incident occurs. Cocky younger doormen who have plenty of verbal but can't back it up, not forgetting the odd psycho who wants to fight anyone. I remember my first night as a doorman, working at a nightclub for someone. I was put with a tough old bloke, one of the old-school doormen, who acted first and thought about it later. I got rather a lot of exercise w...
