A little rant here. I often travel to baseball games in Kansas City and they, like a lot of stadiums, utilize CSC for their security team.
Well, these guys are the most unprofessional looking group of security people I have ever seen. Guys with long hair and lots of visible tattoos, including neck tattoos. These guys look like they would be more at home in a scuzzy biker bar than being a professional security force.

I have worked with some "Event Security" before. I have not seen very many professional employees before. *Not saying they don't exist*, just haven't seen one yet."What if this is as good as it gets?" ~ Melvin Udall

Most event security Ive interacted with are people who responded to an ad of "Hiring Now!" and walked out with a job the moment they walked in."Alright guys listen up, ya'll have probably heard this before, Jackson vs. Securiplex corporation; I am a private security officer, I have no State or governmental authority. I stand as an ordinary citizen. I have no right to; detain, interrogate or otherwise interfere with your personal property-... basically all that means is I'm a cop."-Officer Ernie

I've dealt with event security organizations before ,lots of outside organizations rent and use campus facilities for their events, plays, rallies ect ect. We've even had a small concert or 2. The event security "regular staff" (who work for the company full time) has been pretty decent, it's those "temps" they hire (off the street it seems) that leave something to be desired.~Black Caesar~

$8.50 an hour for NFL games, and the even replaced the refs with low wage guys. LOL.
That $10.50 is SF city legal min wage!
That is the NFL's answer to "fan safety" while they rack in billions in profits.
PS-another place that pays rock bottom is "Great America" theme park in Santa Clara, next to where new 49ers stadium is being built. Yeah, another place that takes your family's safety seriously.
I would make sense for "warm body" posts like construction sites or offices at night to be low wage, but I'd have thought these 'heavy public contact, high profile" gigs would be higher paid with real First Aid etc training required.

What gets me is that the Kansas City Royals have their own people in the booths taking the parking money, the people sherparding you to your parking spot are Royals workers as well as all the ticket takers and ushers. There are a fair amount of KCMO police officers as well that act as not only security, but many carry backpacks filled with medical supplies to augment the first aid folks.
CSC folks do the lackluster security checks of purses an such coming in to the game and standing at the gates after the game to make sure alcohol isn't brought out to the lots. They also have a couple of people that ride through the lots with their bike patrol.
It surprises me that since between the ushers, ticket takers, toll booth and parking lot workers they already have a ton of low wage part time people on their own payroll, why not just suck it up and hire 15-20 more for event security instead of having these tatted up long hairs?

"tatted up long hairs"? Did I ever tell you about my idea to re-brand the 49ers
"Miner" mascot guy as what "the city" is now known for......
Bums! .... big shaggy smelly aggressive crazed bums!!!
Basically the same custom as the current mascot, just give a sign "Spare Change" and big foam wine bottle. Have him pantomime urinating in inappropriate places, like the other's teams Gatorade bucket, eating out of garbage cans, etc.
Treat his costume with some powerful odorant to catch fans grabbing their noses and faces puckered in disgust to show on TV as he makes his rounds through the stands.
49ers could call their "blitz" the "bum's rush".
This song could be used to good effect..."Break out, for you get bum-rushed"
Think I could sell this concept to 49ers corporate? I think the fans would go for it.

CSC Event Security Apparently Has No Grooming Standards
I saw a guy this afternoon in Minneapolis that was wearing a white uniform shirt and I think the patches said Allied Barton. He was very overweight, had a Santa Claus beard, and was walking with a cane! I guess that is what you folks call someone who fills a "warm body post" then. Well, it could have been worse, he could have been smoking a cigarette while in uniform and visible to the public.
