February 6, 2010 – Olympic Village

The Olympic Village was one of the first areas of the city locked down before the Games. We took a wander around the security perimeter today. There is an amazing amount of video surveillance around the Village, and the double layers of fencing are hardened with concrete barricades. There are also lots of ISU personnel around, from RCMP to private security.

Here are some of the photos we took:

    Great set of documentary pics. These are useful in that they help LOs know what to expect, the kinds of personnel they will encounter, how they’re dressed and so on, so they’ll feel more at ease in the actual setting, should a protest march approach such areas. This is a valuable public service. Thanks.

    Again,… Dude, time to get a full time job. And this time try to shoot for something a little higher on the pay scale then “fry cook”.

    Thanks for this “valuable public service”.
