Project Griffin Awareness Day
Since its original launch Project Griffin has been identified nationally as good practice and is now well established in a number of Police Force areas around the country.
Project Griffin aims to encourage members of the community to work in partnership with the police to deter and detect terrorist activity and crime. This will be achieved by working with the community to:-
- Raise awareness of current terrorist and crime issues;
- Share and gather intelligence and information;
- Build and maintain effective working relationships;
- Seek solutions for defeating terrorism and crime;
- Maintain trust and confidence in the Police and other authorities;
- Empower people to report suspicious activity and behavior.
Project Griffin aims to work with people who are involved in some way with the safety and security of a building/business/area and to empower them to recognise and report suspicious activity and behaviour to the police. The Awareness Day also serves to help people think about their own local procedures and processes for dealing with certain types of incident during times of emergency.
Each Police Force will determine the content of their Awareness Day. Topics such as:-
- Special Branch update on current threat;
- Vehicle/Person Borne Improvised Devices;
- Crime Scene Management;
- Hostile Reconnaissance;
- Current crime trends and methods of operation;
- Consequence Management

Project Griffin Phase 2
Phase 2 was introduced as a refresher programme for those who have completed the Awareness day. Phase 2 is an e-learning package and centre approval must be applied for via Skills for Security - once approved, a log on and password will be issued to the nominated administrator giving centres the facility to create delegate records ready to start training. The programme is around 35 minutes in length, comprising video clips and questions and answers guiding delegates as they work through the programme.
