  • [01] Measures against sports violence

    Two special departments set up by the public order ministry to help tackle sports violence - the Sports Police Liaison and the Bureaus for the Prevention of Organised Sports Violence - are due to go into operation over the next few days, police announced on Wednesday.

    The Sports Police Liaison will be made up of 32 police officers that will take on the Super League teams. These officers will all be well-known former athletes that have earned a place in Greek sporting annals by winning important distinctions in major competitions and their mission is to establish communication between club officials, organised fan associations and the authorities, with a view to avoiding tension and violent incidents during sports events.

    Following a training period in the first third of January, the Police-Sports Liaisons will then be introduced to soccer and basketball club officials.

    The Bureaus for the Prevention of Organised Sports Violence will be responsible for collecting information concerning the risk of violence at each sports event and identify the people that are suspected of causing incidents.
