Leading the world of public safety by providing a new wave of solutions for event and venue management

The CREST Planning Team is made up of the very best UK Emergency Service, Local Authority and Private Sector professionals.

Our team have worked on or at all the major events in recent UK history either in command positions, planning, technical production, noise monitoring, firearms command, CBRN and counter terrorism advice, licensing/SAG support, infrastructure, production management and health and safety.

The events we have worked on include the London Olympics and Paralympics including the Olympic Torch Tour, G8 Summit in Northern Ireland, NATO Summit in Cardiff, HM Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, Party Conferences, Notting Hill Carnival, Goose Fair, Tour of Britain, Robin Hood Marathon, Race For Life, numerous national and international Football Matches, Silverstone GP, Glastonbury (exhibitor), Splendour Festival, Caribbean Carnivals, Pride Festivals and others.

As well as the events side of the business our training packages have been delivered across the UK and 27 EU Nations, Sierra Leone and Myanmar. These courses help to improve human rights understanding and policing of events and crowded places. Our modular approach means we can provide a service for the full life-cycle of your event or if you already have a well established team in place but are looking for small enhancements – our services are tailor made for events of any size and nature.

Our ability to plan and deliver world class events for local communities is second to none. Take a look at our Halo Event Management App to see how we embrace technology.

  • “I have had the pleasure of working alongside Greg and Lloyd for many years and am delighted to see that Halo, their innovative, user friendly and operationally practical system is up and running. I am sure that the benefits this system can bring to any operational event are evident to anyone with responsibility for safety and security at events. Greg and Lloyd have the highest levels of integrity, honesty and openness and are totally client focussed. I am looking forward to working alongside them again at the Cricket World Cup 2019”.

    Jill McCracken : Director of Tournament Safety and Security, International Cricket Council

  • “Lloyd has been a key member of the National Policing Events Working Group. His research and contributions have helped shape and inform national guidance that will benefit UK policing, partners and event organisers across the country”.

    Ben-Julian Harrington: Chief Constable - Essex Police / Chair of TTEWG & NPEGG, National Police Chiefs’ Council

  • “When managing events we, like most people, use a combination of software such as WhatsApp/e-mail/Google Sheets etc. Within five minutes of seeing Halo in action we dropped our other systems to streamline our operation. Having one communications and management package so that everything would be in one place, on one system, meant that we could be much more in control, better informed and better prepared than ever before. Halo is the best software platform and I thoroughly recommend it and the CREST Planning Team”

    Judith Manson: Managing Director, Goldline Events, Sage Reading Half Marathon

  • “I have known Greg for a number of years , having worked alongside him whilst he has commanded major events within the UK and also as an assessor on command courses. I was therefore pleased when Greg came out to work alongside me in Sierra Leone. Greg has been an integral part of the UK Policing’s response in supporting the Sierra Leone Police in preparing their officers for the forthcoming Presidential Elections. The country is one of the poorest in the world and has been beset by natural disasters such as Ebola and flooding whilst still recovering from the effects of a civil war.

    The training Greg has provided in such matters as Human Rights, Public Order and Public Safety have been exemplary and provide firm foundations for the country to move forward”.

    David Hay : Election Security Advisor Sierra Leone, Sierra Leone
