Relational risk factors in public safety networks

Title variants
Languages of publication
The complexity of operations in public safety networks poses a challenge from both an organisational and a social perspective. Problems associated with the limited number of resources or prior experience, as well as those arising from the diversity of expectations and beliefs of individual organisations, may give rise to threats and relational risk. Relational risk is a relatively new research category. This paper is an attempt to fill a part of this research gap by analysing relational risk factors in public safety networks. The performed analyses demonstrate the multidimensionality of risk sources in public safety networks, in addition to relational risk factors. The paper also presents the results of an assessment of the impact of key relational factors in public safety networks and characterises the links between them. The paper ends with conclusions.
