Project Griffin is a national counter terrorism awareness initiative for business and individuals produced by NaCTSO to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism.

Its primary mission is to engage, encourage and enable members of the community to work in partnership with the police to deter, detect and counter terrorist activity and crime. It seeks to enlist the help and support of individuals or groups responsible for the safety and security of buildings, businesses, districts or neighbourhoods.

The aim of Project Griffin is to:

  • Help understand the threat from terrorism to the UK
  • Explain what the Government are doing about it
  • Guide individuals on what to do if they find themselves involved in a terrorist incident
  • Enable people to recognise and report suspicious activity
  • Highlight the need for communication between the police and communities

The events are presented by trained police advisers delivering a range of counter terrorism awareness modules, which in turn will allow participants to consider their own procedures for dealing with terror related incidents.


Devon and Cornwall Police are holding Project Griffin Awareness sessions on Thursday 17th August 2017 between 10.30 – 12 am and 1 – 2.30 pm at Westpoint Centre, Exeter, EX5 1DJ.
