Existence of security

Existence of security contractors does not mean anything nefarious was going on. Doesn't mean there was intel of an attack, doesn't mean the police were complicit in an attack, it doesn't mean anything. It's common for police forces to employ security contractors to help provide security for big public events. The police need a certain number of officers for traditional services. If all the police disappear during a big event (to cover the big event) then other parts of town are left wide open for theft and whatnot. So during a special event they need more people than they typically have, but it's a temporary need. So what do they do, they hire security contractors. It's not any more complicated than this.
