Public Safety Plan & Security Training

Security Personnel Training Class

On September 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 requires mandatory training for security personnel. The Scottsdale Police and Fire Departments are offering a 3-hour training course to fulfill this requirement. The new ordinance went into effect on October 10, 2013.

Upcoming Security Personnel Training dates:

    The Scottsdale Police Department is taking necessary precautions to keep the public and employees safe and healthy. Until further notice, the PSP class has been postponed. Any changes to the training schedule will be posted here.

City of Scottsdale Public Safety Plan

Various resources associated with the new Scottsdale Public Safety Plan that went into effect on October 10th, 2013 are available below.

The new ordinance applies to businesses that require age verification for admittance, provide live entertainment or a DJ.

Businesses required to comply with the new ordinance that have not submitted applications and have not met the deadline, are required to submit their application immediately.  Those not in compliance with the City Ordinance are subject to enforcement action.

Please email if you are unsure if you are required to submit a Public Safety Plan. Scottsdale Revised Code 23-54.A makes it unlawful to operate without a Public Safety Plan if you are required to have one. Failure to submit and receive an approved plan, may subject you and your business to criminal and civil penalties.
