MORE than 100 police officers, including plain clothes cops, helicopter teams and dog squads, are set to be deployed to help control concert goers at this year's Summer Sessions.

The details were revealed at a public meeting last night to address residents concerns over event security and logistics.

Representatives from organisers DF concerts, security firm G4S, police and Glasgow City Council joined around 20 concerned locals at the event at the Palace of Art.

The meeting comes after locals raised concerns around safety, following two deaths at T in The Park.

Police said there would be more officers at the event each day than at "a regular Rangers game" and said officers would be on patrol inside and outside the park from 9am until 3am on both days of the festival.

Police control room phone lines would be open from 1pm on both days, at least two hours before the gates to the festival open.

DF concert's production manager James Walker said the events firm is set to triple the number of phone lines available to locals to report any concerns, increasing from one line to three for the August concerts.

He confirmed the capacity for Noel Gallagher's concert on August 26 had been reduced and said: "Biffy Clyro on Saturday will stay at 36,000."

However, he would not tell residents how many people were refused entry at previous concerts due to intoxication, despite repeated requests to provide the figures.

He said: "I don't know what the end game is, what criteria would that satisfy?"

DF are also set to improve signage at this years' event for both traffic and pedestrians.

They also hope to reduce the number of concert goers urinating elsewhere in the park and in surrounding streets with extra signs for toilets in the venue.

Residents spoke of their concerns around security, with G4S confirming last year a total of 54 staff were tasked with patrolling outside the park and into the community, which would be similar to this year's levels.

One resident questioned why the event has been granted an alcohol license, accusing it of being "only for profit reasons".

Another told of a female neighbour having to separate brawling concert goers leaving the event last year.

Labour Councillor Alistair Watson said if there was "good reason to grant the alcohol license then it will be granted" and confirmed council solicitors are consulted on the decision.

Craigton's SNP councillor Alex Wilson raised concerns about incidents from last year, and accused DF concerts' welfare manager of providing a poor service.

He said: "I witnessed the service you provided last year and it wasn't that great. I witnessed lone females, clearly intoxicated. It is a prime area for people to be raped, attacked. It is very dark in the area on Mosspark Boulevard, there was nobody around."

Welfare manager James Dean said they would provide a team dedicated to look out for people who are in need of help, and the lighting would be addressed in the area.
