Secuirty Matters

The Telegraph reports that around 8,000 students will be employed to monitor crowds and provide security at key Olympic venues by the private security firm G4S.

The students will undergo Criminal Records Bureau checks, but previous criminal convictions will “not necessarily preclude” their involvement.

The student security guards will be employed under a scheme called "Bridging the Gap", which does not require them to have a security industry authority licence when working at the Games.

A "bold" initiative!

Minor criminal convictions are not so much of an issue. However, the lack of experience of the security personnel is a major issue.
