World Cup Security: Grenada is Ready

Sun, Mar 4, '07


On Sunday 25 February, thousands of Grenadians - and visitors too - flocked to the Queens Park ground for a rededication of the National Stadium, a 20/20 cricket match and some fireworks. In the background however, the exercise was an ICC-mandated test of its security principles and procedures which should be utilized come match days.

While the approximately 10,000 spectators were singing along to musical artistes Inspector and Sheldon Douglas, the ICC's local security chief Superintendent Franklyn Redhead was busy observing and assessing aspects of spectator access and processing. A few days after the event, I sat down with Supt Redhead, a 22 year veteran of the Royal Grenada Police Force ‚Äď 15 of those years spent in the Coast Guard ‚Äď to get his assessment of the day's exercise.

For those of you who will be attending matches in any of the host venues, read carefully to get an idea of the processes you will have to go through once matches in the 2007 Cricket World Cup gets underway.
