The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has said it will fully support the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Safety and Security Conference 2010, which may include discussion of security fencing.

With the events rapidly approaching, planning for 2012 moves into more concrete stages, with experience of the Winter Olympics, the World Cup and the Commonwealth Games all playing a part in the organisation of security.

Speakers at the conference include Pauline Neville-Jones, home office minister for counter terrorism and security, and Chris Allison, the Metropolitan Police's assistant commissioner for the Olympic Games.

Topics up for discussion include continuity planning, games-time resilience, and how the private sector can contribute to a safe Olympics.

David Evans, the BSIA's project director for 2012, said: "The 2012 Olympics and its ongoing legacy represent a significant business opportunity for BSIA members, and early engagement with the planning process is an essential part of ensuring the private sector's involvement in providing a safe and secure Olympics."

In February this year, the Olympic Games security minister, Lord West, told security industry representatives that the development of security was "truly formidable", reported.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800241317-ADNFCR
