City seeks input on amendments to Public Safety Plan Ordinance


On Sept. 10, 2013, the Scottsdale City Council approved a Public Safety Plan Ordinance. The purpose of this ordinance is to promote the general health, safety and welfare of our community by requiring certain types of businesses to file, follow and keep current a public safety plan.  The ordinance also  requires mandatory training for security personnel. The ordinance went into effect on Oct. 10, 2013.

On August 26, 2021, the City Council, after a presentation on the current status of the Public Safety Plan Ordinance, voted to direct the City Manager in consultation with the City Attorney to return to the City Council with recommended amendments to the Public Safety Plan Ordinance and conduct related public outreach as expeditiously as possible.

Review the draft ordinance amendments and provide comments by Nov. 30, to the Scottsdale Police Department’s Public Information Office by email at
