To help member governments respond to and mitigate challenges associated with public safety, the FLC will offer a series of online and face-to-face trainings, including a spring summit series on community risk assessment and response as well as an active shooter workshop in partnership with the FBI.
The FLC will strengthen relationships with a variety of governmental, social and civic organizations to leverage existing expertise and resources to ensure cities are better prepared to respond to public safety threats. These partners will include, but are not limited to: federal and state agencies for law enforcement, consumer protection, policy making and public health; social services agencies like the Red Cross and Volunteer Florida; county, school board and special district governments especially with regard to law enforcement, emergency response and overall service delivery; FLC Risk Control personnel, local/regional Leagues and others.
The FLC will conduct a public opinion poll regarding municipal safety. The results will inform the development of best practices for municipal public safety efforts. An online portal will house aggregate resources provided by key partnerships and training. A tool kit will be prepared for members that includes information on planning, preparation, response and public communication strategies. In addition, informative articles and city safety programs will be featured in the Quality Cities
magazine throughout the year.
