Security Industry Targets Safer Communities

Security industry representatives from around New Zealand as well as a number of international experts are meeting at the Duxton Hotel in Wellington over the next two days (June 10 and 11) to address security issues of national and global importance.

The New Zealand Security Association conference theme is “Securing a Nation, Working Together” and will focus on the growing need for the Police and security professionals to work together towards safer communities.

Association chairman Scott Carter says most crime is local and it is local people who will have the greatest impact on reducing the crime rate in their communities.

“In ensuring that we achieve our goal of safer communities, we need to work together, with the stakeholders in the community and the local police. The strength of intelligence sharing should not be underestimated,” Mr Carter says.

While the local angle come under much scrutiny at the conference, international problems such as identity fraud, internet security and understanding the criminal mind will be tackled. Specialists in these fields from the United States, Great Britain Australia will present the latest findings and theories in these areas.
