A few days ago, the arrest of nine people from India at the Brisbane Airport, posing as sports journalists and smuggling people ringed the security alarm bells. Although the arrested people posed no direct threat to the Commonwealth Games 2018, but the authorities still decided to tighten the security. The Police Service of Queensland has increased its presence across the 4 cities for the Games, with 3700 officers deployed across these cities. Additionally, around three thousand police officers will be stationed in the Gold Coast area. The police forces and the Defence Forces of Australia also showcased the FA-18 Fighter Jets flying over the Commonwealth Games 2018 cities. The authorities say that the public needs to be ‘vigilant but not concerned’.
