The Ocean Place Resort & Spa located in Long Branch, NJ hired a six-man team from Blackstone’s Armed Uniformed Protection Division for their annual New Years Day . The event was a huge success and more than doubled the last year’s number of participants! With over 1200 people in attendance, BSG officers were tasked with providing crowd control, handling disorderly/intoxicated persons as needed while maintaining a safe and fun environment for staff and attendees. At the conclusion of the event, owner Dave Ollivier, who also worked the event, was told by hotel management that BSG would be hired for all future events at the hotel when additional security is needed. There were no issues at the event and everyone was grateful for our presence!
