A crowd controller keeps order in a public place by:
screening the entry of people into a place
monitoring or controlling the behaviour of people in a place
removing people from a place.
For example, a hotel security guard needs a crowd controller licence but an usher does not.
All security providers must be fingerprinted by the Queensland Police Service. After you´ve lodged your application, you will receive a letter from the Office of Fair Trading that details the process for having your fingerprints taken.
