The French government will this week approve new legislation that will expand the use of electronic monitoring to manage security during the 2024 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris.
According to the AFP news agency, which received a copy of the proposed legislation, the bill would allow the use of artificial intelligence to monitor crowds, especially during the opening ceremony to be held near the Seine River, but also around stadiums, on city streets and on public transport.
Also, the legislation will allow the use of body scanners at the entrances to facilities with a capacity of more than 300 people, which will reduce the amount of security personnel needed for physical checks at a time when it is difficult to recruit employees.
The bill would also grant broad powers to Paris police chief Laurent Nunez from July 1 to September 15, 2024.
Beyond security, the bill would allow cities hosting competitions to allow businesses to open on Sundays from June 1 to September 30, 2024.
The Olympics are scheduled to run from July 26 to August 11, and the Paralympics from August 28 to September 8.
At the beginning of the month, you can start ordering ticket packages for the various events.
