To see in the New Year, G4S Secure Solutions is set to provide security at Edinburgh’s famous Hogmanay celebrations, which is attended by over 75,000 revellers over three days.

G4S will provide 690 security officers, who will be present throughout the event, including 580 staff at the street party.

G4S Events Managing Director, Eric Alexander, said:

“The annual Hogmanay celebration represents the best Edinburgh has to offer. The evening starts off with the ever-popular Torchlight Procession and culminates in the renowned street party to see in the New Year, G4S is honoured to once again help secure this celebration. It is the perfect way to end the year and celebrate our recent successes in Scotland.

“Having coordinated the security at this event for so many years now, we know exactly what’s needed to ensure everyone has a great time. This includes everything from stewarding and security services to managing crowd movement and ensuring everyone gets home safely.

“The whole team looks forward to supporting the celebrations each year and this year’s event looks set to be another great one. We’re looking forward to helping secure this highlight of the festive season for many more years to come.”
