Christmas is coming, and pubs and clubs will soon be full of Christmas get-togethers, office parties, and people celebrating the arrival of the holidays. It s also a time when some people can find themselves in a dangerous situation, either inside a venue or out on the streets, and need extra protection. Door supervisors can make a big difference to the outcome of a night out by intervening to assist a vulnerable person in trouble, and helping them to make it home safe. We want to reinforce some of the key messages from our SIA-mandated door supervisor training, and emphasise the importance of safeguarding vulnerable people in the night time economy.
How can a door supervisor can help to keep vulnerable people safe?
Recognise the risks to vulnerable people being ejected from, or refused entry to a venue:
- Being under the influence of drink or drugs
- Being assaulted
- Being alone
- Receiving unwanted attention
- Domestic violence
- Being too young to look after themselves
- Becoming the target of a sexual predator
What actions can be taken by a door supervisor to protect vulnerable people?
- Call a friend or relative to assist them
- Call a licensed taxi to take them home
- Use a safe haven
- Ask street pastors or street marshals to assist
- Call the police
Can you recognise behaviours that could indicate potential sexual predators? These often include:
- A lone male seen pestering a customer or member of staff
- A heavily intoxicated female leaving with a male
- A regular attendee frequently leaving with different intoxicated females
- Finding a date-rape type drug on a person during a search
