Friday, January 21, 2005 - World Cup St. Lucia Ltd., the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for Cricket World Cup 2007 has laid out plans and proposals for security of patrons, cricketers and officials during the hosting of matches in Cricket World Cup 2007.

The proposals were discussed at a meeting on Thursday January 20th, between the LOC and Mr. John Collymore, Security Director at the CWC Inc. in Jamaica. Among the issues which will receive attention are mass evacuation in the event of an emergency; items not allowed into the ground; and security at official events held on non-match days. Mr. Collymore was apprised of the plans to build a new Venue Operations Centre (VOC) at the Beausejour Cricket Ground, which will facilitate the management of security, medical and emergency services.

Mr. Collymore expressed satisfaction with the level of vehicle and pedestrian management plans, which the LOC indicated have been tested at one day international games during the past two years. LOC Chairman Dr. Jimmy Fletcher informed Mr. Collymore of plans for the establishment of a local security committee, which will work in collaboration with the CWC 2007 Security Directorate in making the 2007 games the best ever.

Mr. Collymore visited Saint Lucia as part of a tour of all venues selected to host matches in the Cricket World Cup 2007.
