The Australian Defence Force and the Police have expressed their readiness ahead of the largest security event in Queensland’s history.
The Police have displayed some of the sophisticated security technologies that will be deployed during the Games.
According to Steve Gollschweski of the Queensland Police, the DroneShield’s DroneGun MKII will be used as an air control measure to disrupt the use of drones during the Games.
He further reiterated that additional powers of search and detaining has been added to their powers.
“They can be assured that everything that can be done, is being done.
“(That includes) additional powers of search, detaining, stopping and giving directions.”
In order to safeguard the security of the Commonwealth Games, Temporary Restricted Areas have been designed.
Airport-style security checks and random location searches has also been deployed to deal with the expected one million ticketholders visiting Queensland.
About two thousand  members of the Australian Defence Force will be deployed on the Gold Coast during the Games. Any bag taken to the event must be smaller than 40cm-by-40cm.
The Gold Coast 2018 will be hosted in fifteen venues across Queensland, Australia from April 4-15.
