Beijing 2008 Security Plan To Be Tested

Mar. 11. 2007

A security plan for the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Games will be tested this year through a series of trial tests evens, according to National People’s Congress (NPC) deputy Qiang Wei, who is also head of security for the Beijing Games.

He said Beijing will host more than 26 sports events in the second half of this year with mock security operations taking police. Police and security personnel will be stationed at more than 100 Olympic venues in preparation for the Games.

Qiang said, “the trial events will provide a chance for us thoroughly (to) examine our Olympic security work”.

Beijing also signed an agreement in January with neighbouring Tianjin Municipality and Hebei Province to undertake joint operations against terrorist and criminal activities during the Games. An emergency plan has been drawn up to ensure all events go on safely during the Games, said Qiang.

Meanwhile Beijing has formed its helicopter police team, and pilots will carry out drills as soon as the helicopters are delivered later this year. Qiang said, “the pilot team has been organized and we are working on an air patrol mechanism. After serving the security of the Olympic Games the helicopters will be used to safeguard the safety of Beijing”.

According to the Municipal Public Security Bureau. the air police will help collect evidence, trail criminal suspects, support ground operations in combating terrorism and riots, transfer policemen and facilities, and direct traffic.

The municipal government has sealed agreements to purchase three helicopters and a free one from an Italian firm. Crew members have been selected from the air force and among college graduates, all receiving six months training.

About 90,000 policemen are expected to be called up for the Games. The security budget is reported to be $300 million, accounting for about one fifth of the total costs said the organizing committee.
