Safety and Security within urban areas are becoming a major concern for many governments and law enforcement officials. With more protests, international events, riots, and gang violence happening in major cities there is a need for increased security. The event will also look into other important areas within this arena such as how local hospitals deal with mass casualties and traumas. Reviewing hospital preparedness and response to mass casualties and how they liaise with other local public sector agencies when dealing with large scale casualties.
The inaugural Urban Safety and Security Europe conference and exhibition will look into many aspects of safety and security in urban areas such as city centers, shopping centers, stadiums, and transport hubs. With cuts in the policing budget, many local constabularies have limited officers walking the streets of city centers and shopping centers which has led to great importance for other stakeholders to be made aware of the risks, threats, and challenges faced in urban areas. Manchester provides an interesting case study due to the fact that Manchester is a large city with one of the largest shopping centers in the UK, the Trafford Centre, as well as having two football stadiums in the city center.
