Special Event Security Planning – 2016 Cattle Barons Ball, Dallas, Texas!

Special Event Security Planning & Operations

SHAFFER SECURITY GROUP (SSG) has extensive experience in Special Event Security planning for large or small scale, public & private events.  As a result, SSG was contracted to augment the security for the 2016 Dallas Cattle Baron’s Ball.  This years Ball is being held at GILLEY’s CLUB, located in Dallas, Texas.

Dallas Cattle Baron’s Ball- 2016:

The Cattle Baron’s Ball (CBB) is a not-for-profit, organization that has raised tens of millions of dollars for cancer research in Dallas alone! This ball is one of the most sought after tickets in DFW.  The estimated crowd of over 3,000 includes some of Dallas’ most elite, prestigious and famous citizens, athletes, politicians and socialites.

Gilley’s Club is a 91,000 square foot building consisting of a restaurant, entertainment area, meeting rooms, private function space and features a 26,000 square foot main show room.  Most famous for its “Urban Cowboy” film starring John Travolta, GILLEY’s is an ideal location for this “Boots & Pearls” crowd to get together to listen to great Country Western music stars and to mix & mingle with Dallas elite.

Gilley’s also erected a 9,000 square foot tent in the rear parking lot of Gilley’s Club which housed the main stage. This stage was the location where renowned music legend TOBY KEITH performed.

SSG was tasked to work with D&L Security (Contract Security Firm) to ensure the safety and security of its guests, the “talent”, and all the vendors who made the night such a success.  In addition, we provided VIP security; front & backstage security; security for entry into the “Green Room”; and augmented the security for both Toby Keith & Dwight Yoakam.

From Active Shooter to a Medical Emergency – SSG has you covered:

By using SSG, we provide your event with an additional “Intervention Capable Resource”.  That is, in the event a violent encounter, stalker or Active Shooter our personnel provide an immediate armed response.  Our Personal Protection Officers (PPO) are all licensed, insured, polite, professional and capable!  All of our PPOs have vast combat and/or police experience.  We are not the bearded, bro-bumping, tattooed, wannabee’s, wearing the most up-to-date combat styles.  We are polite, polished, professionals that blend into the environment, often unseen, until the moment we are needed.

SSG can assist in developing both a “Medical Plan” and an “Active Shooter Plan” to provide your event protection from civil suits in the event of an Active Shooter or Medical Emergency.  SSG’s “Risk Assessment” is essential to ensure best practices are in-place in order to provide a safer, more enjoyable environment during your event and protect you from litigation if needed.

Unsurpassed Experience & Professionalism:

Terrorist are using Drug Smugglers to Enter the U.S.

Officials Warn Sunni Extremist infiltrating US with help from Drug Smugglers

Sunni extremist are infiltrating the United States with the help of alien smugglers in South America and are crossing U.S. bordrs with ease, according to a U.S. Southern Command Intelligence Report.

“In 2015, we saw a total of 331,000 illegal aliens enter the Southwestern border between the US and Mexico, of that we estimate more than 30,000 of those were from countries of terrorist concern.”

This one article alone should be enough for our citizens to rise up and demand tighter immigration enforcement (we don’t need tighter laws, they’re already in place, we just need an Administration willing to enforce the current laws). Which leads me to another ‘hot topic’ for me,… since when does the government get to tell our law enforcement officers which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore?  They don’t have that right! If the government does not want to enforce a particular law, then have the law changed through Congress.

This one article should be enough for our citizens to demand that a wall is built! Whether it is a 30 foot concrete wall or a virtual wall – I don’t care.  What I do care about is a Nation that does not control its borders is a Nation doomed.  Now don’t even talk to me about ‘we are a nation of immigrants,… blah, blah, blah.’ Those immigrants came here LEGALLY and acclimated and learned our culture, our language, embraced our way of life and were proud to become Americans!  Today’s ILLEGAL immigrants want nothing more than a handout, government assistance and have our government and our citizens acclimate and adapt to their culture.

We are the only civilized Country on earth that does not enforce immigration laws and allows the overstays to remain in-country without fear of retribution.  Enforce our laws!  Stop immigration from Countries known to be filled with terrorists!  Protect our Southern Border.  Do the Right Thing and the Common Sense Thing, before we lose our culture and the American way of life. God bless our Leaders and God bless the USA.
