Project Griffin: Protect yourself, your staff, your business and your community

Project Griffin is the national counter terrorism awareness initiative for business produced by NaCTSO to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism.

The threat from terrorism is serious, but it is important to keep it in perspective. This threat comes principally from DAESH (also known as ISIL), Al Qaida, and groups and individuals who can be directed, encouraged or inspired by them. The level of threat is complex and ranges from crudely planned attacks to sophisticated networks pursuing ambitious and coordinated plots.

The aim of Project Griffin is to:

  • Help understand the threat from terrorism to the UK

  • Guide individuals on what to do if they find themselves involved in a terrorist incident or events that lead up to a planned attack

  • Enable people to recognise and report suspicious activity

Project Griffin holds briefing events to increase public and staff awareness of how best to reduce and respond to the most likely types of terrorist activities. The events are presented by trained police advisors delivering a range of CT awareness modules.

Project Griffin Subject Modules

Events are free and can last between one and six hours depending on the time available and number of modules covered. The modules are reviewed and updated regularly and currently cover the following topics:

Introduction to Counter Terrorism Bomb Threats
Current Threat Responding to a Firearms and Weapons Attacks
Identifying and Responding to Susp Behaviour Document Awareness
Identifying and Dealing with Bombs (IED) and Susp Items Drones - Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

An attendance certificate showing the modules covered is awarded to staff at the completion of each event, enabling business to monitor and evidence staff development and awareness.
