Project Griffin counter-terrorism training organised by NaCTSO available for security personnel

by Brian Sims

The opportunity has arisen for security operatives to take part in counter-terrorism training as part of Project Griffin. The training is organised by the National Counter-Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO). In addition, participants will be asked to help evaluate the effectiveness of the training provided.

The training is free for all attendees, lasts for a period of 90 minutes and covers three of Project Griffin’s modules, namely Module 3 Identifying and Responding to Suspicious Behaviour, Module 4 Identifying and Dealing with Bombs (IEDs) and Suspicious Items and Module 6 Responding to a Firearms or Weapons Attack.

This training is particularly relevant as Section 8.1.3 of the Approved Contractor Scheme standard requires a Security Industry Authority Approved Contractor to demonstrate activities designed to promote and improve the awareness of anti-terrorist activities.

Spaces are limited to 20 people per training session. To register for the training, send the names and e-mail addresses of prospective participants and a contact telephone number* (also indicating which event they wish to attend) to: stakeholder@sia.gsi.gov.uk

*Please note: The SIA will share the contact details provided with NaCTSO, their training providers and the evaluation researchers
