Security responsibility for the Millennium Summit is the same as that for any other activity at the United Nations: the United Nations Security and Safety Service is responsible for the security of everyone while they are on United Nations premises
; the host country and host city authorities are responsible for all arrangements relating to security and movement outside United Nations Headquarters, as is standard for official visits.
Protection is provided by host country security authorities to Heads of State and Government, as well as to a limited number of other government officials, by the assignment of protection detail personnel. Arrangements for such assignments are initiated by the embassies of the relevant countries, in Washington D.C., with the United States Department of State. In the case of Heads of State and Government, the respective embassies should contact the United States State Department, if they have not already done so.
Governments whose Head of State and Government is attending the Millennium Summit may wish to have direct consultations with the United Nations Security and Safety Service, particularly with regard to accreditation of national security details.
Any question should be directed to the Chief of the United Nations Security and Safety Service, Michael McCann (963-7525), or to the Assistant Chief, Joseph Martella (963-6150). The Millennium Summit security planning team is located in room GA-100 (963-0368/0369).
