Royal Wedding Security: 1,000,000 dollars

Swedish Radio News reports that security around this summer’s royal wedding will cost almost one million dollars.

When Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling tie the knot in Stockholm Cathedral on June 19th, one-third of the local police will be on duty, including divers, sharpshooters, and plainclothes agents mingling in the crowd. That’s just over 2000 officers, says the Stockholm police’s head of information.

He also says that air traffic is being banned over the city during the ceremony, except for scheduled passenger flights and police and rescue service helicopters.
