CSSC Advice: Time to review security procedures
April heralds the start of a new financial year for many organisations, and as such represents a period of planning for the year ahead. In addition to the usual budgetary, sales and marketing strategies, take time to review your organisation’s security procedures to safeguard its people, property and premises.
The current national threat level from terrorism is SEVERE and law enforcement agencies offer a range of initiatives to help organisations develop appropriate protective security measures.
Project Revise: highlights potential misuse of hazardous materials to those who legitimately and routinely use them.
Project Argus: a suite of workshop-based events designed to inform and advise senior management in preparing a response to a serious attack in crowded places.
Project Griffin: engages, encourages and enables members of the community to work in partnership with the police to deter, detect and counter terrorist activity and crime.
Project Servator: employs training and cutting edge tactics for police to help detect those carrying out hostile reconnaissance or with malicious intent. The project increases the opportunity for interaction between police and the business/local community.
Further details about these projects, including how to contact your local counter-terrorism security advisers, can be found here.
