Security and Protective Services: What You Need to Know

Security and protective services are a necessity in today’s world. Whether you’re an executive, celebrity, or just someone who wants to feel safe on your commute to work, there are various options for you.

Today, we will cover the basics of what security and protective services entail and how they can be beneficial for your needs.

3 considerations on security services for the film and tv industry  

1. The first thing you need to know is that there are a few different types of security services. Especially when it comes to the film and television industry, which we at Action Force Security (AFS) specialize in.

First, there is Executive Protection, which is basically when an individual or company hires a guard to protect their life or property. This can be for a day, week, or month depending on what is needed.

Production Security is basically any security service that serves to protect the life and integrity of people involved in large or small audiovisual and cinematographic productions, such as movies, commercials, music videos, still shoots, and TV shows.

This kind of agency that provides security for film or television productions must have experience and knowledge of the industry because the needs of the cast, staff, and crew are very specific and can vary as the filming is developed.

On the other hand, Security Event Services. Without a doubt, it must be part of the logistics and organization of a large-scale event to guarantee the safety of the artists and the public. This includes music festivals, film premiers, and live events.

Then you have Emergency Security Services which are typically used in unforeseen events and emergencies that often occur in the context of a major project.

In the case of a television or film production, it may be that more security guards are required than anticipated because the set is larger because they must film on locations outside the city, or due to possible threats against the company.

In situations like these, we have a team of well-trained, experienced, and capable agents to handle any emergency, prioritizing the safety and integrity of your equipment, cast, and crew.

Finally, there are also other types of security required in the audiovisual, television, and film production industries. To learn more about it, you can enter our services section.
