ASSURE SAFETY THROUGH PUBLIC SAFETY & VENUE SAFETY

Effective public safety requires a continuum of collaborative partnerships, from licensing and permitting to enforcement and regulatory agencies to prevent disorder and reduce risk. Safe venues boast trained management and staff who provide quality products and service.    

Venue Safety is the measure of how well venues are organized and best practices implemented for safety and security management. 

The Public Safety measure evaluates the process of regulation, enforcement, and licensing of venues as well as coordinating code compliance.  

QUESTIONS TO EVALUATE YOUR CITY'S SAFETY PLAN

  • Is your police budget strained from overtime to manage closing time crowds?

  • Is there a dedicated officer team with specialized training?

  • Do public safety compliance agencies share data and coordinate interventions?

  • Is there an active hospitality and nightlife association in your city?

  • Which is a higher priority in your city: compliance or enforcement? 

  • How is technology used by your nightlife venues? ID Scanners? Cameras?

  • Are there private security services at night?

  • Are licensing systems clear with measureable performance indicators?

  • How often do regulatory and safety compliance agencies meet?
  • Is there a central record of business violations and calls for service?
  • Is there an organized network of hospitality and nightlife businesses?
