It is hoped that Olympic-related security will assist in developing safer neighbourhoods, through measures such as improved lighting, and lead to a reduction in crime and the fear of crime. For example, the Olympic Village, currently in the process of being repurposed into private housing, was granted a new level of ‘Secure by Design’ status, set to inform the construction of future housing developments, presenting a permanent material security legacy to its residents and users. The story of securitising the 2012 Games did not start on 7/7, but evolved over many decades into protection of the Olympic spectacle.

Yet, in many respects, Athens’ (2004) high water mark of elaborate security programming represents a culmination of broader processes of intensifying security that had been in progress since the attacks at the Munich Olympics of 1972. Munich’s utopian low-security experiment was followed by an unequal and opposite reaction of elaborate and intensive security measures that have since become woven into the fabric of Olympic planning.
