SAFE CITY Tel Aviv 2009, an international summit to discuss the rise in organized and violent crime in cities throughout the world, will be held in Tel Aviv from November 30 – December 6, 2009. The conference will be held in the framework of Israel Gateway – the 7th International Foreign Trade Conference and Exhibition.
Personal safety has become a pressing issue in Israel in recent weeks, as a rise in violent crime has caused political and police officials to look to international models of municipal police forces for possible solutions. At the same time, over the past decade the issue of Homeland Security, as well as the war on violent and organized crime have become major challenges to governmental and law enforcement agencies around the world. Safe City will examine all aspects of modern policing on a municipal level. The event will bring together security experts from across the globe, as well as mayors, city managers, police chiefs and commissioners, media representatives and other governmental representatives.
The conference is organized by Global Gate Group together with MK International Security Consulting Ltd. , with the support of the Israel Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Labor, the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Union of Local Authorities in Israel. Corporate sponsors include the Mer Group and Nice Technologies. Further information can be seen at www.israelgateway.com
