Canine security units provide an additional layer to your security services in stadiums, arenas, festivals, museums and public buildings where conferences or exhibitions are held, and can be used as event detection dogs to sniff out explosives, pyrotechnics, drugs and other prohibited substances. You can call us today and we can respond quickly with a specialist dog detection unit to help with security at your event.

Why do I need specialist detection dogs?

Canine security units act as a high profile deterrent on occasions where this may be required. This is usually for sports events or concerts where there is a risk of crowd disorder. Also, high profile events are at the risk of terrorism or acts of violence or demonstration, so dog security is an effective way to identify these threats and provide an immediate response with minimal disruption.

Specialist detection dogs can work in tandem with your existing concert arena security, sports stadium security or conference & exhibition security to provide a robust security solution for your event. Our canine units can also complement your mobile security patrols, out of hours security and access control systems. First Response Group will work with you to design a tailored package dedicated to your specific needs, and through a free, no-obligation risk assessment we will identify existing threats and create a bespoke security solution to control and manage these threats.
