Case Study


The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, a symbol of international sportsmanship, was complemented by the culturally rich Birmingham 2022 Festival.

These events transformed Birmingham into a global focal point, attracting over 2.4 million visitors and significantly benefiting local businesses and communities.

Central to the success of these monumental events was Alert Security, whose expertise in safety and security played a pivotal role in protecting participants, spectators, and assets, thereby highlighting the critical importance of specialised security services in the orchestration of large-scale international events.

Event Overview

The Commonwealth Games in Birmingham presented unique security challenges, from safeguarding high-profile celebrities and athletes to ensuring the safety of thousands of spectators. Alert Security was at the forefront, deploying a dedicated 35-man team daily to address these challenges with precision and professionalism.

Our Contributions

Comprehensive Risk Assessment

With the festival’s vast scope, involving over 41,000 participants and nearly 5,000 creatives, Alert Security conducted extensive risk assessments. These evaluations informed the development of security protocols that were as inclusive and engaging as the event itself, ensuring a welcoming atmosphere for all attendees.

Comprehensive Team Deployment

Our team of 35 skilled professionals provided round-the-clock security coverage throughout the Games, demonstrating our deep commitment to maintaining a safe environment for everyone involved.

Close Protection and Static Guards

Specialising in close protection, our team ensured the safety of high-profile individuals, managing their movements with discretion and efficiency. Simultaneously, our static guards maintained vigilant oversight of merchandise stands and stores, effectively preventing any thefts or incidents.

Coordination with Anti-Terrorism Units and Police

Beyond standard security measures, we engaged in close liaison with anti-terrorism units and local police forces. This collaboration was crucial, especially for the security arrangements during visits by royals and high-profile dignitaries, enhancing the event’s overall security infrastructure.

Tailored services for your complete peace of mind.
