Security Services,

We all know security is needed on production sets and at events. There are some great companies serving the entertainment space including Security Associates of Coastal Georgia and Paradigm Security Services. (There are also some shady security firms out there posing, unresponsive and offering very poor service.)

Besides “set security” industry suppliers are evaluating ways to curtail a crime spree aimed at equipment houses mostly in Atlanta. In the past three months, there have been more than 30 break-ins and robberies at metro Atlanta companies that provide equipment to the film industry. Losses have totaled more than $3 million dollars. People we have spoken with say physical security and other patrol strategies will be in place at these locations going forward. See more here

Onward and Upward!
