Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta 44-THE LCTHBmOOe HBRALD- W*dn**day, January 1», 1974Examines creche Two*year*old Justin Trudeau climbs on all fours up the altar steps to examine the creche in the parish church at Old Chelsea, about 10 miles north of Ottawa. Justin was attending the christening of his brother Alexandre Emmanuel, who was born Christmas Day. Planners envision poUce-mititary $ecurity force of Canada acts to head off another Munich MONTREAL (CP) — Drawiiifl lessons from tbe Munich experience of 1972, the Montreal Urban Community Security Council’s emerging security program for the 21st Olympiad vanes from “discreet" to “rigorous and evident.” Working in close co-operation with Quebec provincial police, the RCMP and the Canadian Armed Forces, fhe MUC force has been studying security for the 1976 Montreal Games since shortly before the Munich Olympics opened in August, 1972 Two senior MUC police officers—Chief Inspectors Philipe Young and Guy Toupln—went to Munich and with full cooperation of officials there obtained an inside view of the West German operation. ' The officers spent a hectic 12 days with E>r, Manfred Schreiber, director of Munich’s municipal police force, and his chief heutenants They returned in December, 1972, for a debriefing session with German police who bad analysed what went right—and wrong—at the Games, where Black September Arab terrorists penetrated the Olympic Village and assassinated Israeli team members. The Mbntrcal Star says Monday in a major review that this city’s program is based on reports by Mr. Young and Mr. Toupin, who IS an assistant director of the MUC force and was assigned three months ago to co-ordinate measures.Smaller force seen The Montreal plans, to date, call for a force of about 6,000, including 4,000 policemen from the MUC, RCMP and Quebec Provincial Police and 2,000 soldiers and military-college ca* dets, says The Star The West German security force included no military troops but 16.000 policemen, 5,000 from Munich and 11,000 from other German areas. Munich police are quoted as saying that “10,000 policemen—instead of 16,000—would have been more than sufficient.” While plans for the Olympic Village here are not complete, a formula is being developed to provide maximum security for the athletes and their trainers while not being “too evident or too heavy.” Police feel it is much easier to provide “evident“ maximum security than to do so “discreetly, in a hidden form.” Plans call for the Olympic Village to be provided with “discreet and somewhat hidden— but intensive—surveillance“' in the daytime. Plainsclothes policemen will be on constant ¡tà-trol in the village, inside its residential quarters and administrative buildings. The women’s living quarters “will be the object of particular attention with permanent and stiffer surveillance.” Uniformed policemen will stand guard at gates and elsewhere-“ Where ver their presence may have a preventive effect.” Other unifonned groups will be kept in reserve to cope with unforeseen situations, During evening and overnight periods, security will become “rigorous and constantly evident” but details of these arrangements are not available at this time. Before security plans become final, local police will have to give much thought to the problems faced in Munich, where the Olympic Village was surrounded by a seven-foot fence, says The Star. Director Schreiber reported that in the early pre-Games period, officers with police dogs patrolled the village at night, but this was stopped at the request of the Olympic Committee after some newspapers said the village had the look of a concentration camp. Some other security measures, “if not abolished, were greatly reduced and weakened." It was said that Black September terrorists scaled the fence to get to the Israel! quarters. The guerrillas killed two Israeli athletes and seized nine others as hostages. Later the hostages—along with flve of their captors—were killed in a Munich airport gun battle. A German policemen was the 17tli victim. Now a special police committee made up of MUC, QPP and RCMP officers is dealing with the terrorist threat in cooperation with Interpol and other international agencies. Committee members are mindful of a West German intelligence officer’s statement after the Munich tragedy; “We bad received many intelligence reports, but nothing too definite about the Black September organization. Although it was thought highly unlikely, the general attitude was simply that ‘if the terrorists show up—call in the marksmenImplications feared German police found it difficult to investiKate foreign suspects fully because of the international charactcr of the Olympics and fear of possible implications or repercussions. The Munich police chief felt officials had been unduly preoccupied with presenting a good police image to the public— “perhaps that was to the detriment of the security, we wanted to give the people." He advised that "once the degree of necessary security is established, such a policy must he endorsed and fully respected by the Olympic Committee as well as the politicians." There now are 30 MUC policemen serving on various planning and study committees, assisted by 60 other representatives from the QPP, RCMP and the armed forces. MUC Police Director Rene Daigneault said the degree of co-operation between the police forces, the armed forces and the Olympic organizing committee “makes it took like they’re all members of a single body.” Judge Jacques Coderre, MUC Security Council chairman who oversees the police budget, said the necessary added cost for security measures will be kept at a minimum.
