Security at the 2012 London Olympics

The Security is given a high priority at the London Olympics because of the fear of terror attacks and riots. The authorities have allocated a budget of one million pounds for security of the event. Half the budget will be used for policing, while the rest will be to deal with threats such as biological attacks. Heli-snipers would also be used to protect from terror attacks.

Unmanned drones equipped with surveillance cameras will be used at the Olympic Games. The Metropolitan Police held discussions in November 2011 to use unmanned drones equipped with surveillance cameras.
