Multiple years of experience with providing on-set armed production security for high-profile television and film productions has equipped the Blue Star Security team with a profound understanding of the unique challenges faced by the entertainment industry. Armed security is critical to the entertainment industry to help mitigate the predictable nuisances that can waste time and increase expenses during a production shoot. Our highly-trained law enforcement professionals understand that the cast and crew must be able to work undisturbed – both on studio grounds and on location – without the constant disruption of fans and the general public.

Our customized production security services are designed to secure both on set and on location, protect the cast, crew and expensive equipment, and allow entertainment productions to proceed smoothly and without incident. All of our professionals have extensive backgrounds in law enforcement and are specifically trained in crowd control tactics. We will identify and mitigate any and all opportunities for theft, disturbances, trespassing, vandalism, unexpected circumstances and other unwanted activities.

Blue Star Security’s corporate offices are headquartered in Chicago – now the second largest city in the nation for television and film production. Our team has had the privilege of providing strategic production security services for numerous high-profile films and television shows including Power Book IV: Force, Shameless, Batwoman, Empire, The CHI, Ordinary Joe, American Crime Story, APB, Death Wish, The Exorcist and Widows.
