On 16 May, the Broadway Centre Security Manager, Mark Adedeji facilitated a counter terrorism emergency planning workshop on behalf of all the Broadway Centre stakeholders and surrounding key businesses. The highly informative bespoke package was delivered by officers from the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Protect Office and was specifically tailored to meet the needs of the local business community. Through a number of scenarios, the group came together to discuss the options available to mitigate risk and explored the wider questions on how we, as a community can collectively improve our existing security procedures in place.
The next BID sponsored Hammersmith counter terrorism event will be held on Tuesday the 12 June, 1000-1100hrs at the Lyric Theatre.
The aim of Project Griffin is:
• To help understand the threat of terrorism to the UK.
• Guide individuals on what to do if they find themselves involved in a terrorist incident or events leading up to a planned attack.
• Enable people to recognise and report suspicious activity.
Project Griffin is a nationally recognised package, the modules being delivered by Metropolitan Police counter terrorism officers on the 12th of June are:
1. Suspicious Behaviour (Sometimes referred to as ‘Hostile Reconnaissance’, you are taught how to recognise it, and what to do – the principles apply to general criminality as well as terrorism)
2. Unattended/Suspicious Objects (Improvised Explosive Device (IED) are a known tactic of terrorists. You are taught what to look out for and what to do if you find something suspicious)
If you have already attended a Project Griffin, please consider a refresher, forward this info to head office or recommend this valuable training to any of your colleagues or company stakeholders.
