Safety & Security
Police Scotland has an enviable reputation and significant experience in policing major events. COP26 presents some unique policing challenges and during the event increased security is likely to be in place in public spaces across Glasgow and at the main conference site at the SEC.
Planning for the event is well underway and Police Scotland has already started the detailed process of working with partners for what will be a complex policing operation to support the delivery of a safe and secure event. Officers and staff will also be working in association with UK Government and Glasgow City Council as part of the Get Ready Glasgow campaign to ensure local residents, business and visitors to the city are able to plan ahead for any potential disruption.
