Abstract

Special events are an integral part of every community. Events provide a place to have fun and escape the normalcies of everyday life. Our society’s violent culture is playing a role in how special events are being planned and executed. Recent events, like the tragic shooting at Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas have caused security efforts to increase at events across the globe. Music festivals, sporting events, and all other special events are challenged with adapting to rising security risks. This report will address the impacts of our violent culture on event planning and security at special events. This report will also look into the best practices being used by event planners and security personnel.
