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

Public Safety Plan

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

Businesses required to comply with the 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.

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.

If you are unsure if you are required to submit a Public Safety Plan, email the Public Safety Plan Contacts
