A Critical Approach of the Administrative Security Model and the Security Policy of the Olympic Games 2004 (Athens)

Korontzis Tryfon


The aim of the present short article is to examine critically the security planning of the Olympic Games (OG) 2004 and particularly the manner in which it was developed and set into operation, the institutions and units involved, the command model which was developed so as to ensure their safe conduct as well as the problems revealed by the enforcement of the relative legislation and the legislation which was established for this specific event. The handling of the security of The OG 2004 to the Hellenic Police (HP), created the additional problem that the aforesaid institution would be in a position to have institutional opinion for actions and functions of other Competent Authorities, which were outside its normal-legal institutional framework, with the possible danger due to the lack of the analogous specialization for wrong decisions and choices to be made.
