Safety Planning

Public safety is an important function for city governments. It refers to the duty and function to protect citizens against threats to their well-being as well as the traditional functions of law and order. Crime, violence and fear in cities pose significant challenges. The basic principles of good governance must find a direct application in any safety strategy, aimed at reducing and preventing common problems of crime and insecurity.
