With the Olympic Games just around the corner, a lot of questions have been asked about both the safety and security aspects of the games.
As you may know, the government has given the responsibility of supplying security staff for the games to security firm G4S. It was revealed a few days ago, however, that they would not have enough staff to cover the security needs of the games. This led to questions about the security arrangements for the games.
Security has always been a major concern at the games, and events such as the Munich Massacre show that this concern is well placed. The Olympic Games has always been an event that has merited great amounts of publicity, and this can provide a perfect opportunity for criminal activity.
Due to the lack of security personnel, the government has announced that certain army units will be assigned to the games to make up for the staff G4S cannot supply. This has resulted in summer leave being canceled for 3500 soldiers. G4S have agreed to pay for the deployment of these personnel as they failed to fulfill their obligation to provide a adequate number of Olympic security staff.
Although this problem has been fixed swiftly, is it the first of many in the countdown to the games or is it an isolated incident?
