Security Scotland will be attending the Glasgow Violence Reduction Workshop on Thursday 19th October 2017. We’re continually looking to evolve as an organisation and develop. With the latest knowledge on subjects such as violence reduction methods, we can continue to do our job in protecting the public. We are always looking to pass on first-hand updates on this subject from Police Scotland and the security industry regulator – the SIA, to our frontline licensed personnel.
The UK wide event’s ethos is to promote violence reduction measures within the night-time environment. The event is looking to bring people from different sectors of society to discuss good practice, local initiatives and experiences in order to minimise harm and violence in the night time economy. The workshops will involve presentations from the police and other authority figures.
We’re looking forward to delegating with everyone attending.
More than a decade ago Glasgow was deemed ‘The Murder Capital of Europe.’ At the time Strathclyde Police took a radical approach to the city’s addiction to violence. Influenced by the World Health Organisation, the VRU (Violence Reduction Unit) was set up to tackle the problem. Working with health, education and social work agencies, they have successfully worked to reduce violence in the city by as much as 70%.
By treating the problem as a disease instead of a crime it’s help shape the city for the better. Although there has been many improvements in Glasgow, more work has to been done as we see the challenges faced on a daily basis.
We have many years of experience in every aspect of event security. In the UK, we’re one of the country’s top security and crowd management providers, working with many recognisable brands, clients, companies, events and stadiums.
