Behavioural Detection at Events- In the UK, the development of behavioural detection within events has been brought to fruition due to the continued threat of a terror attack. A service that was provided by trained police officers, the acceptance that private security providers will now play a role in this is common.

The following has been gathered from secondary websites, news and presentations.

Some of the terminology contained in the headings and body of these links is misleading. These have been taken from press articles, websites and videos. The use of the word stampede and panic is not what you will find to be the causes of the incidents shown. The information provided is reflecting the articles written and it is being left to you to interoperate what you see and read and come to your own conclusions. Please also not that this list only refers to gatherings involving events such as concerts, sports, night clubs (entertainment). There is only inclusion of some significant events out with this.

To participate in crowd management, a basic understanding of crowds is required. This is not just the maths and physics of crowd movement and density; this is only half the story. How a crowd thinks, bond, understand and interact is the other half. By ignoring this part of understanding crowds can lead to failures and in some cases death.

Let us introduce you to some resources to peak your interest and hopefully lead you to explore this fascinating area. This is only the tip of the iceberg.

Links to videos from crowd incidents

The following training videos have been created to gain a fuller understanding of crowds and interaction with them.

Due to the limitation of this site, we have uploaded the videos on to YouTube and have posted links to these videos on this page. A description of the methods used will also be provided.

Over the years crowd safety has improved to levels that have never been seen before. We have training courses in safety, security, customers service and understanding crowds. This has been widely embraced by established company’s that have been part of the creation.

It is our wish to assist others that have not had the means or the ability to gain access to these courses to achieve this. Where possible we will supply course material that is free to use and relevant to the subject. This material is constructed fro open source material and teachings of professionals in their fields.
