It depends on the size of your event. The general rule of thumb is to assign one guard per 100 people at your party to meet your needs. However, smaller events don’t necessarily mean hiring fewer security guards. For an event with 500 people, you will require a significant security presence like hiring 4 to 12 guards.

There’s no need to provide security guards per person unless you invite a political leader or a public figure. If your event is being held in a spacious environment with more chief guests and alcohol on the menu, you will need one guard per 50 people.

Sporting events require unbeatable security to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and event officials. At stadiums and other sports events with above 500 people, there should be 8 to 12 trained security guards to control the crowd. And if the sporting event is greater than 1000 people, then 30 to 40 trained guards are considered ideal. The exact number depends on the size and complexity of the event.

One security guard is enough at a private event with 20 to 50 guests. If the venue is spacious with 100 to 200 guests spread across a large area, you should hire 4-10 guards.

For a regular school event with 200 to 300 guests, three guards are enough, and if the event has 500-800 guests, 5 to 10 guards can maintain the order while ensuring the crowd’s safety.
