DRWC is seeking contracted special event security services primarily for our summer and winter season of events, May 2019 – October 2019 and November 2019 – March 2020.

DRWC produces and facilitates approximately 50 (fifty) events that are primarily free and open to the general public. The events encompass festivals, concert events, fireworks, ship visits, facility rentals and mobile tours at the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing (Columbus Blvd. at Market Street), Race Street Pier, Cherry St. Pier (Columbus Blvd at Race St.), Spruce Street Harbor Park (Columbus Blvd at Spruce St.), and other properties owned or operated by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation.

We are currently anticipating approximately 3200 contracted special event security hours for the upcoming summer season. We are seeking to secure one (one) contracted hourly rate for all events, whether the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation or an external event party produces the event.

Delaware River Waterfront Corporation takes pride in providing a safe environment for its visitors and employees and expects the contracted security officers to demonstrate this same level of pride and professionalism in the services they will provide.
