Many local governments think public security is to cope with sudden events and some of them simply think public security problems have to do with the indifference of leading cadres, so they have established a leadership responsibility system to provide a responsibility foundation for public security. Of course, all these are ought to be done, but these public security measures adopted by local governments still stay in a stage of “crisis handling” rather than “crisis management”.
In China, tens of thousands people are injured or die from natural disasters, accident disasters, social security events and other sudden public events each year. If we say the economic loss caused by a public security event is measurable, the invisible loss caused by it is incalculable. If public security problems bring about a negative effect in people’s mind and may shatter people’s trust in the society and government, it is not smaller than economic loss.
Government function shall not just stay at establishment of sudden event emergency plans and a work safety leadership responsibility system for public security. Instead, it should be transformed from routine management to dynamic management, from post-event management to proactive management, and from crisis management to risk prevention and control.
Proactive management may forecast event occurrence areas and time in advance through information acquisition and analysis and take measures in advance. Over the years, now police have known very well the areas under their jurisdiction, they know where the hotspots of crime are and where privileged events are, and a great deal of data and information may be applied. These provide more fact-based clues and evidence for experienced police officers and teams to estimate the possibilities of specific types of cases or other unexpected events, take precautionary measures in advance and more effectively deploy police resources. In New York, after an intelligent security system was adopted, the crime rate fell by 27%.
Urban fire agents also rely on information analysis. They hope to prevent fire through information analysis. Many fire agents periodically inspect buildings in the city, but more effective method is to carry out inspection based on risk, collect information of specific types of buildings or equipment, for example, manufacturer records and maintenance records, combine the information in different ways and analyze it by analytical tools. In this way, you can roughly predict the locations of fire risk, and allocate resources and protect people’s life and properties in a better way.
