Australia satisfied with Commonwealth Games security

Australia satisfied with Commonwealth Games security
May 25, 2009

The Australian Commonwealth Games Association (ACGA) has said Indian organisers had shown they were capable of ensuring athletes' safety at next yearâs Games.

Reuters has reported that ACGA Chief Executive Perry Crosswhite said, "as far as we're concerned, it's all go now and there's no issues with (security)."

Crosswhite had previously expressed concerns about security following the attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team bus in Pakistan in March. But, following a recent visit, Crosswhite said, "I was much more impressed this time (with security) than I ever have been previously.

"They've actually put in place one body that's going to control security and that wasn't the case previously, and that's the Delhi police.

"The Delhi police are in the process of hiring 8,000 additional police officers ... They're also bringing in Games lanes between the venues and the Village and they're going to secure those ... none of that existed previously."
