Hostile Awareness Course

Last month our training division delivered a pilot Hostile Awareness Training Session as a starting point for all our frontline staff ahead of the impending Protect Duty legislation that may also affect security & safety staff and associated upskilling. 

Protect Duty is a new piece of legislation under consultation that will require many businesses to formally assess terrorism risk for the first time. The Home Office estimates that 650,000 UK businesses could be affected by Protect Duty.

The 4 hour training session was delivered by a recently retired supervisory Police Officer whose role encompassed the facilitation, set up, structure and delivery of the Behaviour Detection and Disruptive Effects programme. These open-source tactics predominantly focus on counter terrorism however they are effective in the deterrence and detection of hostile persons involved in criminality, protest, and theft.
