ACT Awareness

  • Introduction to Counter Terrorism

  • Identifying and Responding to Suspicious Behaviour
  • Identifying and Dealing with Bombs (IEDs) and Suspicious Items
  • Bomb Threats
  • Responding to a Firearms or Weapons Attack
  • Social Media

Police Officers from the Specialist SERVATOR Team will also be present on the day to give the audience an overview of Met Police’s Project SERVATOR and Government Security Zone.
