The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) has published results from its Venue Security Director Survey in an industry report. The project was approved by USM’s Institutional Review Board (IRB), which reviews academic research involving human subjects to ensure that it follows federal and university requirements. The online survey was administered to venue security directors hosting professional sports teams from Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, and the National Hockey League. Venue demographics, staffing and training, fan behavior, technology utilization, patron screening, cybersecurity and drone mitigation were areas of focus.
