A besieged city and a reference icon for celebrations: this will eventually become security operations for the Copa Libertadores final and the next celebration, which will have its epicenter on Obelisk Buenos Aires, as decided at the last meeting of the Security Committee held on Friday afternoon.
After removing the idea of the Nation to organize two giant public spaces such as the fan fest seen at the World Cup (projects including Costanera Sur for Boca fans and University City for those from River), after the veto opened again Bombonera to avoid overflowing like last Thursday in the case of winning Boca, when open practice can end in tragedy because of the excess of people who are prevented from having the freedom to get out ordinary and emergency people, The Buenos Aires Ministry of Security and Justice guarantees that a typical place where fans go to take the Olympic round will wear the color of the River or Boca.
Fact, at 9:00 a.m., the Obelisk will wear the winner's color and wait for the crowd to party quietly.
For this reason, it was decided that the City Police would be responsible for the operation with More than 1000 men and paramedics (During the day, 150 health workers, 9 very complex ambulances and 26 health posts will be used), while everything related to the party itself in Núñez will be the duty of federal forces, where there will be 2,000 soldiers including those to be given the Gendarmerie and Prefectura. If it is added to them 900 private security officers were hired for the event, we are talking about 4000 people dedicated to the party running in peace, as it should be.
Operations in the court will begin at 9 am and the stadium doors will open at 13, four before the start of the match. Like everyone has to go with them ticket is not transferable and your ID, the recommendation is that you attend as soon as possible.
There will be a checklist for 200 barrabravas, including capo, Guillermo Caverna Godoy, kidnapped this Friday 300 tickets and seven million pesos at his home in San Miguel, allegedly originating from resale for the grand final.
In addition, anticipating arrivals will be key because they were established 3 security rings that must be owned by every fan who has a ticket. The first will be framed between Libertador, Udaondo, Monroe and Lugones Avenue. There will be a search, the entry of people will be arranged and most importantly, there will also be 200 Safe Tribune programs to control that there are no bars with restricted entry entries. The next circle is 200 meters from the stadium, where there will be other strict controls. And the last is already at the turnstile where the security forces will be multiplied because there is fear that many fake tickets are circulating and that the victims when they see the blocked entrance try to force the situation. Something in the first match, at Bombonera, was quickly dismantled.
Inside the stadium, private security will act with two clear objectives: to cover the entire width of the land to avoid any attempt to attack the field, whether it is the Consecrated River or Boca, and on the other hand to order entry and exit points so that there is a constant flow without crowds.
If the champion is the River, it is estimated that there will be no additional problems. In this case Boca and considering that the award took place in the stadium itself and that the maturity of Argentine fans is still a pending account, the perimeter of the field will be strengthened with cash.
In addition there will be a aerostatic surveillance system, which is a visualization mechanism that is installed on the hot air balloon it has camera for day and night use and transmission in real time. He has the ability to rise 300 meters and It has a 360 degree viewing angle that allows you to identify objects 2 kilometers away, and by zooming you can do face recognition to take pictures of anyone who wants to start an incident and act accordingly.
Then another operative comes, which will be revealed on the streets. Of the 21 Obelisk, it will be painted with champion colors and there will be a system for celebrating as closely as possible.
There will be a dam fence on the border bordered by the streets of Santa Fe, Callao, Belgrano and Bajo, and city police stationed throughout the country.
An aerostatic control system will also be installed there and City mobile camera that covers a radius of 50 kilometers and sends in real time a picture to a monitoring center that will be responsible for monitoring all things that happen.
And while everything is expected to happen as an unforgettable party, just in case you will be ready special detention groups in stadiums, called Doucad and integrated by infantry corps, to act if necessary. Something that I hope will not happen, because the eyes of the world will perch at this unique event that will support the city and the entire country in less than 24 hours.
