Virtual Event: Public Safety / Safer Cities

Safe. Smart. Connected Cities.

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 (Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Never before has public safety and emergency management been thrown under such large scale, worldwide, rapid operation. COVID-19 has caused major pressure on emergency services, the healthcare sector, municipalities, and so many other stakeholders to work collaboratively, swiftly, and effectively.

The Public Safety/Safer Cities Virtual is a Canadian based series focused on bringing together key civic safety focussed government stakeholders to explore strategies for ensuring cities become safer over time, even with rapidly growing populations, through creating and maintaining more resilient urban environments, preventing and mitigating emergencies, and promoting public safety through policing.

Strong international and local benchmarks of work towards building safe and resilient cities, effective case examples of emergency response to complex urban safety issues, and essential strategies for ensuring civic safety through best practice community centred policing are front and centre of the forum.

This event will look at relevant strategies for improved and robust public safety, including lessons learnt so far from COVID-19 and how we must operate going forward, operational excellence and progressing digital maturity.
