London Olympic organizers say security will stay solid for the Games, despite the troubles posed by G4S. LOCOG chairman Sebastian Coe is convinced the Olympics will be safe for athletes and spectators alike, with security staffers from various agencies ready to meet the challenge in the UK.

Sebastian Coe, Chairman of LOCOG, said, "I will say it again, we are ready, we’re ready on security. The challenge we had, and there’s no point being naive or coy about it, the challenge we’ve had was never about numbers, we’ve been secure on numbers it was actually about the mix and making sure that G4S are able to provide as many people as they possibly can, and that’s helping them with all sorts of things at the moment which my chief executive and the military and the Home Office are doing. Our teams are working alongside G4S at the moment to help. We want to get as many of their teams out as we possibly can, that’s the right and appropriate thing to do."
