London Olympic Games Security 2012

London-2012-3-RS


 

In this section of the Security Website we are going to keep you up to date regarding current security events regarding the 2012 Olympic Games in London. And we also provide companies that offer security solutions for the Olympic Games. See the bottom of the information profile for more details.


Security planning for London 2012 is well underway !!


Staff at the London 2012 Organising Committee and the Olympic Delivery Authority are working closely with Government and a host of policing, safety and security agencies to achieve a safe and secure Games.

Together with our partners we are aiming to achieve a Games that everyone can share in and celebrate safely whilst causing minimal disruption to daily life in London and the rest of the UK.

The UK has an excellent track record of regularly hosting and policing major events safely and securely. We shall build on this expertise, as well as our considerable counter-terrorism capability for the Games.

As well as planning for Games-time, we are building security into the designs for the Olympic Park and venues.

London and the rest of the UK regularly host and police major events safely and securely. By building on this considerable, renowned security experience, London 2012 can leave a positive legacy.

 


London-Olympics-2012-RS

 

 

The celebrations begin with the torch relay in May, with the Games themselves opening on 27 July 2012 and going right through to 9 September.

Together the Olympic and Paralympic Games will see around 14,700 athletes from 205 countries competing at venues in London and around the UK. All this will take place alongside regular events such as Wimbledon and the Notting Hill Carnival, as well as celebrations for Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.


A safe and secure Games


The UK has an excellent track record of successfully hosting major events safely and securely – it’s one of the reasons that the UK won the Olympic bid in the first place. The Home Secretary is lead minister for Olympic and Paralympic safety and security and is committed to ensuring that the Games are enjoyed by millions of people, safe and secure from all threats, including terrorism.

The Olympic and Paralympic security directorate (OSD) - within the Home Office’s Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism - is responsible for developing the Olympic security strategy, monitoring the way it is put into action and managing the security budget. Baroness Neville-Jones, Minister of State for Security and Counter-Terrorism, is the minister leading the strategy on a day-to-day basis.

Multiple agencies - including the police service, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) and the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) are involved in making sure the Games are safe and secure. They are all working closely with us. Please check out these policy documents and booklets for the publics' piece of mind:

2012 Games ticket touts to be hit with £20,000 fine

Thursday, 10 Mar 2011

Touts who attempt to sell tickets for the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be hit with fines of up to £20,000, Home Secretary Theresa May announced today during a visit to the OIympic Park.

The government intends to increase the penalty for 'touting' - selling Olympic and Paralympic tickets in public, or in the course of business, without permission - from £5,000 to £20,000.

Tickets for the Olympics go on sale next week.  With nearly 11 million tickets ultimately available for the Olympic and Paralympic Games it is very different from other major sporting and cultural events – making it attractive to ticket touts.

Home Secretary Theresa May said: 'The 2012 Games will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the Games on home soil. By increasing the fines for touting we are sending a clear message to criminals and prospective criminals that it is not worth their while and they are not welcome.

'The focus of the government and everyone involved is to deliver a safe and secure Olympic and Paralympic Games that London, the UK and the world can enjoy. It will not be spoiled by ticket touts.'

Assistant commissioner Chris Allison, national Olympic security coordinator, said: 'We do not want our Games blighted by touts. My officers are working now to make the Olympics as hostile environment as possible for them, and increasing the penalty will help by sending a clear warning.

'Touts are part of organised criminal networks, often involved in other crimes, and we are committed to dismantling them layer by layer.

'Today, we have sent out warning letters to those who may try to illegally sell Olympic tickets, to warn them their card is marked and we are watching.'

LOCOG Chair Sebastian Coe said: 'We want to get London 2012 tickets into the hands of enthusiastic sports fans so that our venues are packed to the rafters at Games-time and provide a fantastic atmosphere for the athletes.

'The message is loud and clear that ticket touts are not welcome and will face large fines. We urge everyone hoping to come to the Games to sign up to our website at www.tickets.london2012.com

and ensure that they are applying for tickets through the proper channels.'

Notes to editors

1. Touting Olympic and Paralympic tickets was made a criminal offence by the London Olympic and Paralympic games Act 2006, punishable by a fine of up to £5,000, to be increased to £20,000. An amendment to the Act will be laid before Parliament shortly.

2. The Metropolitan Police Service has a dedicated unit - Operation Podium – to tackle touts and Olympic related fraud. Since they were formed in June 2010 Operation Podium have made a total of 49 arrests for offences including touting, fraud and handling stolen goods.

3. The penalty only applies to selling tickets in a public place or in the course of business. LOCOG are operating an exchange system for those who wish to legitimately sell any unwanted tickets.

A dedicated Intelligence Unit has been created within the police service, ensuring vital information is gathered and shared amongst security partners.

The IOC have inspected our security planning and are satisfied with progress.

A dedicated team has been set up to police the Olympic Park construction site, helping to make sure the site is safe and secure for workers and residents alike.

A dedicated London 2012 lead has been created within the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) and the Government will work closely with the industry on the provision of Games-time security staff.
