SUPPORT FOR POLICING & COUNTER-TERRORISM PROJECTS
Project Griffin, a police initiative to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism. It brings together and coordinates the resources of the police, emergency services, local authorities, business and the private sector security industry.
Project Griffin was developed by the City of London Police and formally introduced in London in April 2004 as a joint venture between the City and Metropolitan police forces. Its remit was to advise and familiarise managers, security officers and employees of large public and private sector organisations across the capital on security, counter-terrorism and crime prevention issues.
Following its unqualified success in London, Project Griffin has been recognised as National best practice and is being implemented by police forces cities and communities throughout the UK. It has also generated interest and acclaim overseas, particularly in the United States, Canada and Australia.
