ACT Awareness (formally known as Project Griffin)
New West End Company invites its members to attend ACT Awareness, which has been produced by the National Counter Terrorism Security Officer to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism.
ACT Awareness encourages communities to work together with Police in order to detect and deter terrorist activity. It aims to give everyone the confidence to recognise and report suspicious behaviour and guidance of how to respond to the most likely types of terrorist activities. ACT Awareness is aimed at front of house and security staff.
The awareness sessions are presented by a local Counter Terrorism Protect Team Police Officer and include the following modules:
- Introduction to Counter Terrorism
- Current Threat
- Identifying and Responding to Suspicious Behaviour
- Identifying and Dealing with Bombs (IEDs) and Suspicious Items
- Bomb Threats
- Responding to a Firearms or Weapons Attack
