Security & EMT Services

Safety and security of our guests is our number one priority, so our Security Department is staffed 24/7. South Towne Security personnel - door attendants, badge checkers, etc. - can be scheduled through the Security Department. Contact your Event Manager for details. If your event has over 1,000 attendees, a police officer is required (see below EMT, Police & Fire Department Services). Please contact your Event Manager to discuss your coverage options and pricing. When deciding upon coverage, please consider the following:

  • Security officers are charged at a minimum of four hours per shift.
  • For every four officers working the same shift, an additional person must be hired to provide breaks.
  • To avoid additional costs, please provide a final list of your security needs to your Event Manager at least 30 days before the first contracted day of the event.
  • Selecting security coverage through the South Towne Expo Center allows billing to be added to your final settlement invoice. 

Individual vendors and exhibitors may independently schedule their own security coverage to protect their property during non-event hours. Schedule vendor or exhibitor coverage at least 30 days in advance, online at: https://ww04.elbowspace.com/secure/20151009110604982377 

The following chart lists the recommended security coverage for loading docks, exhibit halls and meeting rooms for all events. Please note that meeting rooms can be re-keyed (Licensee access only) to avoid room security charges (re-key fee applies).

  • In addition to the required police presence, arrangements can be made to secuire uniformed or plain clothes officers to enhance your event's security.
  • EMT, Police, Fire and South Towne Security orders are charged at a minimum of four hours per shift.
  • Orders for any of these services that are within two weeks of the first contracted day of the event will be subject to a premium hourly rate.
