The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) have expressed their confidence the Australian Government are taking all measures necessary to ensure the security of Gold Coast 2018.

Commonwealth Games Associations (CGA) are being briefed on security measures as part of the ongoing Chef de Mission seminar here.

CGF President Louise Martin was asked whether the organisation was satisfied with the plans, following a series of high profile incidents and terrorist attacks across the world in recent months.

Martin claimed the CGF were confident the Australian Government's plans were well advanced regarding security issues, but that they would remain focused on the issue.

"We are fully confident that the Australian Government have everything under control here, but they are not complacent," Martin said.

"Everything isn't completed but they're actually ahead of where they need to be in many ways.

"We are confident our family is coming into a country which is cognisant of what is happening everywhere."

It was announced in June that the Queensland Government would fund the training of 1,000 extra security guards for the Games, taking the overall number to around 4,200.

The guards will patrol buildings and events throughout the duration of the multi-sport event, which will run from April 4 to 15.

An increase in extra closed circuit security cameras was also confirmed by the State Government.

In December, Gold Coast appointed MSS Security, Wilson Security, SecureCorp and SNP to provide more than 4,000 security personnel during the Games, which will take place from April 4 to 15.

The four company consortium will provide the largest security workforce appointed in Australia in the past decade, with 30 per cent set to be recruited from south-east Queensland.

The appointment was followed by confirmation that Rapiscan Systems would act as the official security screening equipment supplier for the Games, having previously done so at Glasgow 2014.

Rapiscan will provide and install all physical security screening equipment at the Commonwealth Games Village, as well as venues.

Delegates attending the Chef de Mission seminar will be provided with details of the organiser's security plans, with Gold Coast 2018 seeking to provide reassurance.

Commonwealth Games Minister Kate Jones stressed that all levels of Government were working hard to try to combat any security risks.

She claimed organisers and the Queensland Government would continue to be guided by security services.

"The delegates will be briefed on the security measures we have put in place," she said.

"It is wonderful to hear from Louise, from the international body, that they are confident in the work that is happening here.

"We have all three levels of Government working hand in glove when it comes to security.

"The Premier and me, the Gold Coast 2018 chairman, are briefed directly by the police commissioner at all of our monthly meetings on the Commonwealth Games preparedness.

"I share Louise's confidence that we are taking every single step necessary to ensure we put on the safest Games we can.

"Every step we can take, we are taking."
