Crowd Control Planning


Although there are no magical secrets to crowd control, the following ten important suggestions need emphasis by administrators and event managers in crowd control: crowd control:

  1. Establish written behavioral standards and expectations for coaches, players, students, song and cheerleaders, spectators, and management personnel. Communicate them in a variety of ways, expect them to be followed, and do something when they aren't.
  1. Establish/communicate policies and emergency procedures regarding: a) fire: b) drinking and possession of alcoholic beverages, c) possession, use, or sale of drugs; d) medical emergencies; e) bomb threats; f) lost and found articles; g) bringing foods, beverages, radios and tape decks into the gym or stadiums; h) alternatives in case of score clocks, light, or other facility failures, and it transportation.

    Written emergency procedures should be clearly understood by the public address announcer.
  1. Identify supervisors and ushers by use of jackets, armbands or badges, and expect them to be active and visible to quickly identify and discourage problems.
  1. Expect/encourage management personnel, supervisors, and security people to avoid becoming too involved in watching the event and to be observant, active, and consistent in applying rules and procedures.
  1. Be consistent in applying policies and rules; be supportive of your management and supervisory personnel.
  1. Avoid seating bands or spectators near the visiting team bench and the visiting team spectator seating area.
  1. When someone is behaving in an undesirable way, or violating stales of good citizen- ship, do something about it. Actions speak louder than words. Inaction allows the establishment of undesirable examples and habits that can mushroom, lead to more serious problems, and result in negative learning.
  1. Have admissions, ticket sales, and parking lot personnel observe and screen people for possession of alcoholic beverages, intoxication and abnormal or suspicious behavior. Alert crowd control supervisors to observe behavior and whereabouts of potential problem people.
  1. Supervise the rest rooms.
  1. Establish precise job descriptions, expectations, and authority of all working personnel and inform them of all rules, regulations and emergency procedures.
