Paris 2024: security and mobility, two key points in the organization

Safety and mobility during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games are currently at the center of discussions between the actors responsible for organizing the event.

In the middle of winter, some have cold sweats at the mention of the Paris 2024 Summer Games. 18 months from the opening ceremony, crucial questions still arise in terms of organization.

The thorny question of transport

If the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin warned his troops by indicating that no one would be on vacation in June, July and August, we will have to find tricks to recruit security guards in the private sector.

The 30,000 police and gendarmes who will be mobilized every day on average, including 35,000 for the opening ceremony alone with the banks of the Seine, will not be enough. Twenty-five thousand additional agents will have to be recruited. Problem: the sector is already in tension and there are more offers than candidates. With the Covid-19 crisis, many have changed jobs. Faced with the risk of getting stuck in the water in the recruitment process, the profession has recently seen its salaries increased and new negotiations are underway. The sector is faced with another major difficulty: the profession has only 15% of female staff. We will have to recruit a number of them for the pat-downs of women during screenings.

A debated transport budget

With regard to transport, the president of the Ile-de-France region Valérie Pécresse (LR) asks that the gauge of the opening ceremony of the Paris Olympics be “ less than 500,000 » instead of the 600,000 currently linked to transport safety. A position given during a mobility committee which brought together all the transport players of the Olympics when the question of transport becomes crucial for the Olympics in 18 months, and that a standoff opposes it to the State on the subject .

Valérie Pécresse points to a transport capacity “ insufficient ” with a “ risk of crowd movement “. The opening ceremony, which should welcome 600,000 people, is the subject of “ difficult discussions ” in particular between the State, the town hall of Paris, the police headquarters and the organizers. On the possibility of transport all night during the Olympic Games, Valérie Pécresse takes up the alerts of infrastructure managers on ” the operational impossibility of such a choice “, because he ” would remove any ability to perform a number of routine operations and maintenance ».
