Public Safety

Public safety is essential
for cities. Unless families
and businesses are protected,
cities cannot grow economically
or compete internationally.

Cities face potential natural disasters and terrorism. They must also devise disaster recovery strategies to cope with power outages and even economic downturns.

As urbanization accelerates, public disorder becomes a threat. Governments must also be aware of the risk of cyber-attack on cities’ infrastructure.

City leaders can guarantee security by controlling access to restricted sites and infrastructure and by implementing deterrents to violence, theft and vandalism. They must also plan emergency preparedness measures and strategies for emergency financial assistance.

Public safety is costly. Technology and financial innovation can help governments provide cost-effective solutions.

Citi for Cities draws on the private and public sector worldwide to offer solutions that support law enforcement, emergency response, disaster preparedness and defense, to enable the safe communities that citizens and businesses need to prosper.
