Police: ‘Tremendous’ Security Planned for Golden Globes

Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards will take place amid a massive security effort driven by multiple law-enforcement agencies and private services.

“This is obviously a high-profile event and there’s a tremendous amount of security put into this,” Lt. Lincoln Hoshino, a spokesperson for the Beverly Hills Police Department, told Variety Thursday.

With the Globes and subsequent after-parties scheduled to take place Sunday at and around the Beverly Hilton, the Beverly Hills police are collaborating with multiple law-enforcement agencies on security. The FBI and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are working with Beverly Hills P.D.

Meanwhile, private security officers employed by event organizers are expected to play a major role. The Hilton on Wednesday provided Variety with details of its plan to move after-party attendees through a revised transportation and security system following last year’s check-in meltdown that saw long wait times for guests arriving at the after-parties from off-site. The new plan calls for an increase in the number of security stations processing party-goers as they check in to the event, and expedited travel for shuttle buses through security checkpoints.

Private security, Hoshino said, will take on the bulk of responsibility for access of employees and guests to restricted areas within the Globes.

Asked whether attendees can expect to once again see armed officers wearing body armor at and around the Globes and related events, as was the case last year, Hoshino said, “Absolutely. That’s the norm.” He added, “I know that we’re using a lot of technology at the event. We consider this a large-scale event, and there’s going to be a multi agency response.”

Because of the heightened security, Beverly Hills P.D. is encouraging attendees to arrive at the Globes well ahead of the recommended arrival time.
