Sport Event Security Aware (SESA)
The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4), at The University of Southern Mississippi offers Sport Event Security Aware (SESA) designation, a security planning process designed to promote a standardized methodology for security planning at sporting venues and events throughout the United States. The planning process defines a minimum threshold of security policies, procedures and operational plans that address physical security, technical security, access control, emergency management, training and exercise, and weapons of mass destruction. SESA is designed to be a repeated cycle implemented by venue or event managers to enhance preparedness, prevention, response and recovery efforts of acts of terrorism.
NCS4 offers SESA certification to all professional, collegiate, high schools, and event organizations that own or operate sports venues or events.
