Special Events

A special event at the Herbert C. Hoover Building (HCHB) is any event that occurs in the HCHB auditorium or lobby and requires additional Protective Security Officers (PSOs) to prevent unauthorized access to restricted areas.

When special events are open to the public, or when non-governmental vendors are invited, PSO support must be coordinated with OSY before final approval. This will require placing additional officers in the area of a special event. Funding for additional officers is the responsibility of the event host. To request additional PSOs for an event, please email three offices at least 10 business days prior.

Security Procedures for Attendees

Upon arrival to the HCHB for a special event, all visitors and their personal belongings such as briefcases, purses, and hand carried items must be screened at the entrance. Visitors will be required to present valid government-issued photo identification. All visitors will be issued a temporary visitor badge, which must remain visible for the event's duration. To prevent unauthorized access to the facility, visitors will be permitted only in the event space and will be denied access other parts of HCHB except the restrooms.
