271. Operation Overt, an investigation into a British terrorist cell that was planning the ignition of liquid bombs, consisted of seven different forces: Lancashire Police, a suspect born in Blackburn; West Midlands Police, like another in Birmingham; Police in South Wales, where another suspect took hydrogen peroxide; Thames Valley Police, as the same suspect lived in High Wycombe; Essex Police, where a number of co-conspirators lived and attended the sixth form of the university; Hampshire Constabulary, where an accused once lived; and the Metropolitan Police, heathrow being the starting point for alleged airline attacks. Andy Hayman, ACPO also warned that a lack of capacity to coordinate service at the national level will have an impact on the Olympic Games: planning for Monitoring the Olympic Games will continue to create difficulties in the current structure and funding of police forces. is that the serious threats and risks that society has faced are not being given sufficient attention and are not being met in current levels and structure of resources.  281. The London Olympics are only four years old. In June 2008, a report commissioned by the Mayor of London on preparation for the Olympic Games stated that "security plans were at a very early stage and clearly supported the rest of the planning."  The mayor told us: I think it is important that we realize very quickly the security architecture for the Games; that is, we need to know if we are going to get the police to pay off; we will have a lot of safety cards; Are we going to rely on intelligence? What is our approach in tracking games, because it will strongly influence the experience of players in games; it`s already going to affect the way we put on games. I am afraid there has not been enough work.  282. Metropolitan Police Authority President Len Duvall expressed concern about the lack of progress in terms of the troop`s ability to organize the Olympic Games and its other missions, the same is true of Olympic grants. Paul [Stephenson] and his colleagues have to do the job, they give you their best shots, but we need some security on money and problems to be able to continue and plan, and we get there with that money. We have had it recently; It would have been nice if it had been a little earlier, but the interface we have with the government needs to be sharper and more focused if we are to do a good job.  283.
This uncertainty over funding and commitments also has implications for London`s external forces, which, due to the scale of the event, will play a role in monitoring the Olympic Games: at this stage, it is difficult to quantify the resources needed to support the Olympic Games. The police already expect them to begin integrating the Olympic factor into resource and resource planning.
