Olympic Games 2024: civil servants authorized to carry out private security activities

Public agents will be able to combine their employment with private security activities during the Olympic (July 26-August 11) and Paralympic (August 28-September 8) Games, to respond to recruitment difficulties in the sector, according to a draft decree. “During the organization of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, private security companies are encountering recruitment difficulties,” recalls the government in this text spotted by the specialized media Acteurs publics and AEF Info.

“Among the measures likely to be implemented to alleviate these difficulties, the possibility of allowing public officials and state workers to combine their public employment with the lucrative accessory activity of employee of a company has been identified. “private security agents”, it is further specified. This accumulation of activities, on a voluntary basis, “will imply prior and individual authorization from the public employer” concerned. The system will also only last two months (from July 15 to September 15) and only agents who already hold a professional private security agent card will be eligible.

“The exercise of the lucrative accessory activity (of private security agent, Editor’s note) must not undermine the normal functioning, independence or neutrality of the agent’s assigned service,” concludes the government, which must formally present this text to the unions on April 23 within the framework of the Common Civil Service Council, a consultative body. The Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games are expected to mobilize between 17,000 and 22,000 private security agents depending on the day.

The French Federation of Private Security (FFSP) has identified a need for 20,000 agents to supplement the current workforce of around 180,000. The accumulation of activities for civil servants is not a first. In December 2022, public officials were thus authorized on an experimental basis to combine their employment with that of school bus driver, a sector which was also experiencing recruitment difficulties.
