DAVAA Events /Counter Terrorism Event for Business


July 12, 2017 @ 9:30 am

Why:  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 event that
  • Leads up to a planned attack
  • Enable people to recognise and report suspicious activity

DD One together with Police Scotland will be holding a Project Griffin seminar on 12 July, briefing members about how you can increase public and staff awareness of how best to reduce and respond to the most likely types of terrorist activities. The event will be presented by trained police advisors Detective Constables Mark Irwin and Mile Galloway.

If you would like to book a place on the above seminar, please contact  sarah.craig@dundeecity.gov.uk

The event is free and is scheduled to last 3 hours.
