spread of the Games, a new and additional level of national coordination has already been put in place to ensure consis- tency across the planning and delivery of all the local operations. In my role as National Olympic Security


D


Coordinator (NOSC), I’m working closely with the local ‘Gold’ commanders to make sure that the delivery of the many safety and security operations is similar, no matter where they are in the country, and that the sport is not overshadowed. During Games time, I’ll be the single


informed voice on how the safety and security operation is running across the country, linking into key partners includ- ing government. A new multi-agency coordination centre has been established at New Scotland Yard – the National

Olympic Coordination Centre (NOCC) to support this role. The NOCC staff represent more than 20


police departments and external organi- sations – ranging from Emergency Service colleagues in Fire and Ambulance, UKBA, Ministry of Defence and a team to rep- resent the 12 Police ‘Golds’ running their operations in the venue forces. As with all sporting events held in Lon-

LOCOG will use a private security company [plus 3,500 troops] to deliver a venue-based security operation, which will include searching and screening everyone entering the competition venues.

the Olympic Park, Wembley Arena, Wem- bley Stadium, Earls Court, Hyde Park, Horse Guards Parade, Wimbledon, North Greenwich Arena, Greenwich Park, Ex- CeL, Lord’s and Royal Artillery Barracks. Each venue will have its own police


plan to support the work of LOCOG. This plan will cover all threats to the venue, the number and type of police officers needed, plus a range of contingency plans in support of the event organiser’s plans. Additional specialist input will be provided by officers who are experienced in delivering specific security plans – aim- ing for a successful and safe London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
