Security Strategy Revised For 2012 London Olympic Games

British Security Industry Association (BSIA) : 14 March, 2011  (Company News)
The BSIA comments on new strategy that ties together the aims and objectives of the various authorities and organisations responible for the security of the Olympic Games to be held in London in 2012

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has welcomed the Government's publication of a revised Safety and Security Strategy for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.


Revised following the publication of the National Security Strategy in October 2010, the Olympic and Paralympic Safety and Security Strategy sets out the key aims and objectives for Police, government agencies, organisations and departments responsible for delivering a safe and secure Olympic Games in a little over a year's time.


Outlining the key security threats facing the Games, the revised strategy cites terrorism, cyber attack, international military crises and major accidents or natural hazards as the most significant risks facing the event. It also acknowledges the additional security requirements of non-competition venues nationwide, such as hotels, airports, training venues and live screenings.


As the leading trade association representing the UK's private security industry, the BSIA has been involved in Olympic security planning from the outset, working closely with the Olympic Security Directorate (OSD), the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (LOCOG) and the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).


Speaking on the release of the revised security strategy, the BSIA's dedicated Project Director for 2012, David Evans, comments:


"This strategy demonstrates the maturity of the work that has been put into developing the document since its previous publication. The revised strategy takes into account additional areas of security concern, such as parallel events, and gives more detail on other areas such as transport and borders and a more detailed governance."
