Buckles Says G4S Still Confident It Can Provide Secure Olympics

Nick Buckles, the chief executive officer of G4S Plc (GFS), said he’s confident that, working with the police and military, the company can deliver a secure London Olympic Games.

“We’re still confident that, together with the military and the police, we can deliver a safe and secure Olympics,” Buckles told lawmakers on the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee in London today.

Competitor companies are providing 500 staff to assist G4S, Buckles said.
