The Canterbury Tales together with Canterbury Connected Business Improvement District is happy to organise a Project Griffin Training session for the local businesses of Canterbury.
The training will be held in the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge in the Cathedral Precincts on Wednesday 11 July from 6pm – 8pm and is free of charge.
Project Griffin is the national counter terrorism awareness initiative for business produced by NaCTSO to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism.
The threat from terrorism is serious, but it is important to keep it in perspective. This threat comes principally from DAESH (also known as ISIL), Al Qaida, and groups and individuals who can be directed, encouraged or inspired by them. The level of threat is complex and ranges from crudely planned attacks to sophisticated networks pursuing ambitious and coordinated plots.
The aim of Project Griffin is to:
- Help understand the threat from terrorism to the UK
- Guide individuals on what to do if they find themselves involved in a terrorist incident or events that lead up to a planned attack
- Enable people to recognise and report suspicious activity
Project Griffin holds briefing events to increase public and staff awareness of how best to reduce and respond to the most likely types of terrorist activities. The events are presented by trained police advisors delivering a range of CT awareness modules.
