Event / Project Details:

Alongside an ongoing contract for the NFL, Integrated Security Consultants Ltd (ISC) provided the services of its close protection and escort officers to the prestigious cheeleaders of the Tampa Bay 'Buccaneers', the home team for 2009's NFL Series held at Wembley Stadium.

Services:

  • Close Protection and Escort teams
  • Operational management, Planning & Consultancy
  • Transport Provision
  • Police Liaison
  • Mobile & Search teams

The cheerleaders arrived over a week prior to the NFL events to promote the NFL's growing presence in the UK. ISC's dedicated CP teams took responsibility for the cheerleaders' safety from the moment they touched down, meeting them straight from the airport and escorting them safely to their five star London hotel, to their departure after the match weekend.

Responsibility for guaranteeing the security of the cheerleaders during their stay was undertaken by Colin Morgan, ISC's experienced CP Coordinator. The cheerleaders had a demanding schedule of television appearances and radio shows lined up for their visit, as well as holding cheerleading clinics with cheerleading schools, visits to football clubs and personal appearances at stores including Selfridges and Harrods. Morgan and the CP team took control of all aspects of security for the cheerleaders; from operational consultancy, operational planning visits and close protection coordination to guarding, mobile and search teams.

ISC's meticulous approach saw no stone left unturned. Each venue visited by the cheerleaders was surveyed prior their arrival. This process of gathering information gave the CP team the knowledge to ensure that they were bringing the cheerleaders into the safest environments possible.

As well as handling pre-event and post event security for the cheerleaders, ISC handled their security during all events that cheerleaders attended, including for the NFL match itself held at Wembley Stadium on the final day of the series.

This is the third year running that ISC have looked after Cheerleading teams for the NFL series. Once again, all events ended with no issues or breaches of security.
