ACT Awareness

ACT Awareness is the national counter terrorism awareness initiative for business produced by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) to protect cities and communities from the threat of terrorism.

Previously known as Project Griffin, this is part of the national counter terror awareness campaign banner Action Counters Terrorism (ACT).

The City of London Police delivers ACT Awareness Events, governed by NaCTSO. These can be run on City of London Police premises or they can be offered in-house to businesses within the City of London. Please see further details below.

City of London Police Premises

These are held regularly at a venue within the City of London between 9:30am - 1:30pm.

ACT Awareness provides an overview of the following areas to give organisations an awareness of the threat from terrorism:

  • Current threat level
  • Prevent strategies
  • Hostile reconnaissance
  • Methods of attack

There is no cost to attend the event.

Tea, coffee and water will be provided during the event and a personalised certificate of attendance will be sent out after the event.

Due to the high demand for places on ACT Awareness at Wood Street Police Station, we have now changed the way we manage our bookings.

Priority will be given to those working within the City of London Force area, please check you are within the City boundary by clicking here​;

We do have a small number of spaces available for organisations that have links within the City, but are not based here.

There will also be a limit of five people per organisation for each session.

If you are not based in the City of London, please contact your local police force to find out more about ACT Awareness in your area.

In-House Premises

Run by City of London Police Counter Terrorism team, this is available to businesses within the City of London only. A Counter Terrorism Security Advisor will attend your premises and deliver a two hour presentation.

The presentation will cover the following areas:

  • Current threat level
  • Hostile reconnaissance
  • Stay Safe

There will be the opportunity to have a short break during this time, should you wish to provide refreshments.

There is a minimum of 20 delegates required for an in-house service, with the maximum being dependent on your venue capacity.
