We were delighted to contract 1st Stop Security to assist with delivering an outstanding event for over 30,000 festival-goers at Bournemouth 7s 2016. Their team supported our safety and security operation by providing static and roaming SIA personnel responsible for key areas of the festival site throughout the live event.

We had a fire alarm system to install in a car dealership in Poole. When the engineers arrived on site they were told it would not be possible for the site to be left without fire cover over night, the works were planned to take four days. I contacted 1st Stop Security and within 24 hours they were able to provide a security guard to walk the site during the night when the site was empty checking for fires. The service we received was quick and simple. I would use 1st Stop at any time.

1st Stop Security provided cover between 4pm and midnight for our Music Festival in June. The Security Guard was on time, smartly dressed, looked imposing and fit and did exactly what was required which involved keeping an eye on our house and preventing visitors from crossing in to an out of bounds area. As it got dark, he helped several people find lost children and ensured that the site had quietened down before leaving. His presence definitely deterred people from attempting to enter the private area and would have been noted by anyone who might have been ‘casing the joint’ for a future uninvited visit. We will definitely use 1st Stop Security again next year.

Poole ABC have used 1st Stop Security for our boxing events for many years now, they are our go to for any show regardless of event size or location. Their professionalism in event security means we can concentrate on what we do best, boxing.
Poole ABC, B. White (Vice Chairman)
Being that this event was a family event on a family run caravan park we were quite worried about what sort of security we would have but we were happily surprised with 1st Stop and very glad that we choose them. We found them to be very professional and very friendly with the campers, not intimidating in any way but did their job in a business like way. This is the second time we have used them and we will be asking them back next year!

We worked with 1st Stop Security for our recent family festival in the Bournemouth area. The professionalism was second to none, the team were very helpful from start to finish and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone in need of a security solution.

Thank you very much! We are very pleased with how it went and already starting to talk about another one next year! It was great to have such a good team with us so thank you and we will definitely be asking for your help in the future! You were all great with us and our campers!
Bentley’s Entertainments used 1st Stop Security’s services at a wedding in Dorset for 250 guests to assist with both security and guest parking. They were very professional, discreet, charming and fantastic to work with on all accounts. I would highly recommend them.
