Its main concentration will be in making sure that London, the Olympic participants and the many fans will be safe in the village and throughout the event. London is very well known for having the big brother society having lots of CCTV cameras around. In fact, it has the most number of CCTVs per person compared to any other city around the globe. The minister, Ms. Tessa Jowell, gave her assurance that the security levels will remain consistent and that there will be absolutely no risks to safety of anyone during the Olympics.
There is also assurance from Government that they will not be lacking in both technology and human capital in ensuring that the security will be more than adequate.

Scotland Yard is responsible for security at the Olympic Games. They are to monitor the public transportation, to take charge of the neighbourhood environment and control the street parties in London which the organizers wanted to attain with the Olympic Games. This person has responsibilities in the Olympics security, forming the expenses in security point of view.
Private Security Company Personnel:
Many security companies were employed for this event. They are used for so many jobs. This will be from checking tickets as well as to become caretakers inside the Olympics stadium. This persons will be required to have the SIA License, a step in order to secure and when the representatives of the security staffs need inspection. It will decrease risks of unreliable staff and the potential issues in securities to those who work in that event.

Volunteers can create so much problems which might result to other headaches in order to ensure that securities are legal.
