Initiatives for Supporting Sports
Through sponsoring in sporting events, SECOM contributes to the growth of those events and cooperates in security elements which enable events to be held and operated safely and securely.
Sports competitions which are held safely and securely provide excitement and happiness to countless people. In the early days of our company, SECOM provided security services for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Since then, we have contributed to the holding and operation of many sports competitions.
Moving forward, in addition to working to take part in the improvement of security for sports competitions, we will contribute to the growth of sports by participating in a variety of sporting events.
Manager, Tokyo 2020 Promotion Department
SECOM CO., LTD.
An Official Partner (Security Services and Planning Category) of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.
Still in our infancy, in 1964 we provided security services for the Olympic Village at the Tokyo 1964 Games, earning high marks and the trust of society.
We look forward to helping ensure the safety and security of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 and will continue working to create innovative services that will help us achieve this goal.
Establishment of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 Security Consortium and appointment as a joint representative
On April 2018, in order to contribute to the safety and peace of mind of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 (hereinafter, “Tokyo 2020 Games”), SECOM participated in the establishment of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 Security Consortium (hereinafter, “Tokyo 2020 Security Consortium”) and was appointed as a joint representative.
As an Official Partner of the Tokyo 2020 Games, SECOM engaged in continual discussion with organizations such as the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in regards to the security system necessary for a successful Tokyo 2020 Games. As a result of these discussions, in addition to two partner companies in the category of “Security Services and Planning,” it was decided that the best structure would be an “All-Japan System” with participation from numerous other security companies. The decision was made to push forward towards successful Games through a consortium system.
SECOM was established in 1962 as Japan’s first security company. Two years later, our company handled security for the Tokyo 1964 Games. Our performance at the Tokyo 1964 Games helped us expand dramatically and has led to our growth today. At the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Games, SECOM seeks to show our gratitude for the opportunity that we received in 1964. In addition to thoroughly fulfilling our role as a joint representative of the Tokyo 2020 Security Consortium, we will strive to contribute to the success of safe and secure Games with industry members united.

Sponsorship of long-distance running events (marathons, ekidens)
SECOM sponsors long-distance running events such as the Hakone Ekiden (Tokyo-Hakone Intercollegiate Ekiden) and Tokyo Marathon. Normal roads are used as the courses for these long-distance running events and the roadside is lined with huge numbers of fans, which requires secure operation. At the Hakone Ekiden, a total of more than 1,000 full-time static guards were positioned for all sections of the race.
SECOM was also an official partner for the Tokyo Marathon 2018. Our company deployed our vehicle-mounted monitoring station “On-Site Center,” which collected images from wearable cameras worn by security guards and various types of security cameras installed along the course are managed and analyzed. Furthermore, prior to the event, we used “SECOM 3D Security Planning,” utilizing spatial information in proposing seamless security plans for contributing to safety and secure event.
