Since the end of October our Specialist Services teams have been deployed at a host of locations throughout the country in conjunction with the COP26 event taking place in Glasgow. Our close protection officers, behavioural detection officers and rope access teams were all deployed throughout the 2-week event. In addition, we continually carried out penetration tests on all our client’s premises to ensure the integrity of each site was at the forefront of our staff’s minds. Our Head of Field Operations, Mark Leonard commented “this event was one of the UK’s largest Policing Operations with around 10,000 officers deployed daily and we were delighted to play our part in supporting visiting delegates, heads of state, royalty and of course the local Glasgow & Edinburgh business communities”.

#ProjectServator is a policing tactic that aims to disrupt a range of criminal activity, including terrorism, while providing a reassuring presence for the public. Highly visible and unpredictable deployments will be carried out across the country by police officers specially trained to identify individuals who may be planning or preparing to commit a crime. Key to the success of Project Servator is the support of security partners like ourselves, businesses and the general public to be extra eyes and ears for the Police, reporting anything that doesn’t seem right, to help make it even harder for criminals to succeed. The campaign aims to support operational policing in helping to build a network of vigilance and encourage the reporting of suspicious or unusual activity. You can report suspicious activity online via this link - https://act.campaign.gov.uk/
