Paris Summer Olympics 2024

Please keep us in mind as you prepare for travel to the Summer Olympics, which will take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024 in Paris and 16 adjacent sites.


France has a large Middle Eastern and North African population that has staged major terrorist attacks in the past and remains a serious threat.  The Ackerman Group will closely monitor the security situation in Paris and publish special advisories 90, 60, 30 and 15 days before the start of the Games.


Our Paris team is led by John Reinbold, who retired from the NYPD Intelligence Bureau in 2021 after serving nine years in Paris as its primary liaison officer with the French National Police.  He continues to be based in Paris and maintains excellent contacts in the French security establishment.


John and his team look forward to supporting the needs of clients attending the Games.  Our protective details normally consist of vetted security drivers and armed or unarmed agents.  Our armed agents are retired members of French security forces who can legally carry weapons.  They are at a premium, so let us know as soon as possible if you require their services.  Given sufficient lead time, we also will be able to arrange for armored vehicles.
