Event Security

Security at events is a crucial piece of the event planning process. Proper planning when it comes to security can make an event successful for the sponsor, presenter, and guests.

Planning Ahead is Essential

File an Event Registration Form (ERF). The sponsors of an event must file an ERF four (4) weeks before the event for some events, and two (2) in advance for others (see the main Event Registration Form website for more information). This allows event-planning experts to better understand the event. You may be required to meet with the Events Management Planning Team (EMPT) and/or its members like Cornell Police, Cornell Dining, Environmental Health & Safety, or others who will assist with the event planning and assess where your event fits into the table below.
