Crowd control techniques may involve these items like hiring the presence and services of some hefty bouncers, placing temporary walls, and putting up some velvet ropes within the vicinity where an event will happen. Nonetheless, these intimidating items can be further maximized if you do some crowd psychology and create some environmental changes as well. There are some less extreme measures and techniques for crowd control that you can apply when dealing with an event that will draw large group of folks such as job fairs, concerts, rallies and special celebrations.
One of the best crowd control techniques is paying attention to the overall temperature of the venue, and according to some studies in social psychology; there is a direct link between displaying unruly behavior and committing violent crimes when temperature is relatively higher. As an event organizer, you must invest on having climate control systems in order for you to have a greater control of the crowd during relatively hot day. If you know you are being watched, then there is a greater chance that you will be behaving according to a sane individual, and for this reason, proper security visibility and surveillance is another key factor in doing crowd control techniques.
Having control on the crowd takes a lot of preperation (just like home staging when it comes to styling homes).
