REAct Foundation

The Victoria BID, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police and the Centre for the Protection of the National Infrastructure (CPNI), are piloting a new training scheme called Project REAct.

 REAct Foundation training is for all personnel at a site or organisation to recognise suspicious behaviour or activity, engage with individuals in a friendly purposeful conversation and act upon their suspicions.  It aims to create a sustained, disruptive environment that denies ability of those with hostile intent to operate effectively. An important aspect of creating this sustained disruptive environment is generating the right behaviours in existing staff at a site to help achieve this with or without a police presence. Criminals, be those undertaking petty crime through to terrorist hostile reconnaissance, want to be able to undertake their malicious activities at a site with impunity: comfortably, without fear of detection. More than anything they do not want to be approached or spoken to by police, security staff, or personnel at a site.

REAct Foundation is a 40-minute awareness package that provides course participants with: 

  • An understanding of what hostile reconnaissance is, where hostiles get their information and what they are looking for;
  • The Insider Threat;
  • Examples of suspicious activity;
  • The Power of Hello – how personnel can make a real difference through friendly engagement;
  • Understanding a site or organisation’s reporting procedures;
  • Interaction with the public; the importance of the type of information gathered and thanking them for reporting suspicious activity.
