GDS has extensive experience and expertise in delivery delivering training to police, security, front of house and bar staff within entertainment venues. Based on training developed for the UK and Australian Police and Star City Casino in Sydney Australia, our training is engaging, pragmatic, relevant and fun. We offer face-to-face and on-line programs that can be crafted to suit your needs and time constraints. Lasting 1-4 hours, our training sessions focus on ensuring that your venue provides a safe environment for patrons and does not place them at risk by the inappropriate service of alcohol, or by neglecting obvious signs of drug intoxication that may warrant either refusal of service or medical attention. Using videos, role-play and real life scenarios, our training provides your staff with the skills they need to recognize and respond to drug and alcohol intoxication with in your venue. Our works helps you keep you your venue safe, welcoming and reduces the risk of litigation.
