Alexandra Palace, one of London’s most iconic entertainment venues, is the latest organisation to sign up to Halo (v5), a crowd safety, security and threat management platform.
Halo Solutions, one of the global leaders in crowd security and safety technology, who designed Halo (v5) will equip the Grade II-listed Alexandra Palace with a wide range of crowd safety and security capabilities to protect its buildings, services, infrastructure and the public.
Halo (v5) will be used 24/7 to monitor the iconic building premises, ice rink, theatre and large car park areas, handle all incident management, digitising security checks and procedures, standing orders and security tasking. The technology will streamline all security, crowd safety checks and reporting procedures.
Alexandra Palace, also known as Ally Pally, opened in 1873 and has since played host to some of the biggest events and occasions in London’s history.
Halo (v5) will also be used to assist in Alexandra Palace’s overall enhanced security preparedness to tackle counter terrorism and play a pivotal role in ensuring crowds enjoy their experience at the venue in a safe and secure environment.
Lloyd Major, CEO and Halo Founder, said: “We are delighted and thrilled to be working with such a proactive and world-class team at Alexandra Palace and for Halo (v5) to be playing an important role, not only in protecting the iconic Alexandra Palace and its estate, but also in helping to keep the public and visitors to the attraction safe and secure.
“Protecting the public and venues, making public spaces safe places is our number one priority. As a former police officer and one who also worked in
counter terrorism, it has become my life mission with Halo to ensure that all sporting, music and entertainment venues adopt and embrace better communications and the latest safety and security technology, along with enhanced training and best practices. When it comes to the safety and security of the public, they are our number one priority.”
Emma Dagnes, CEO at Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust, said: “We welcome five million visitors to the Park and Palace each year for a variety of events and experiences, that truly enrich people’s lives. At the heart of this is people’s safety and ensuring our security standards, at all touch points, are of the highest standards. We are pleased to be working with Halo as we continue to enhance our security set up, so that Alexandra Palace can be enjoyed and bring benefit to all.”Click below to share this article
