Register your Party with Police

It’s a good idea to contact the police to register your party with them. The police will be able to provide safe partying tips, let you know of noise regulations, and can help you if the party gets out of control. If you hire AFS Security at your event we will ‘register’ your event and liaise with Police on you behalf.

Security Services at Your Function

A minimum of two licenced security guards is recommended for any function for up to 100 people. An extra security guard is required for every additional 50 people or part there of.

This is the minimum recommended ratio of security personnel to invited guests. For higher risk locations or events, the number of guards may need to be increased.

The licenced security guards will patrol the external perimeter of the premises to ensure there is no one loitering outside the function. They will have two way radio communications with each other if required to ensure the safety and security of you, your guests and your home or venue.

If alcohol is being served then we highly recommend that you only have people with a current Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) certificate serving behind the bar area.


Price per licenced security guard is:       $55.00 per hour   (min. 4 hours each)

Price per RSA certified bar attendant is: $40.00 per hour   (min. 4 hours each)

All prices are subject to a 10% Government GST charge.
