More Safety and Security at Sports Grounds
Following on from Safety and Security at Sports Grounds (2005), this book is once again for professional practitioners and students of safety and security at public assembly facilities. It is a second collection of articles and commentaries by Jim Chalmers and Steve Frosdick, covering their work from 2005 to 2010. The co-authors debate the differences between 'safety' and 'security' and look at aspects of the football hooliganism problem. They present case studies of safety and security at different venues and events, as well as critiquing spectator experiences in different world venues. They comment on venue security conferences and end with a critical reflection on the UK Football Safety Officers' Association. The book is essential reading for venue managers, event organisers in sport associations and host cities, safety and security managers in the sporting environment and students on courses leading to careers in sport business.
