Disruptive Effects (DE) aims to create and sustain a hostile operating environment for people conducting hostile reconnaissance – the information-gathering terrorists and other criminals need to do to plan successfully. These disruptive effects are achieved by coordinating resources to disrupt hostile activity, while at the same time, reassuring the everyday site user and encouraging them to help by reporting suspicious acitivity.
Disruptive Effects is achieved at organisations, venues and events by staff who have received See, Check and Notify (SCaN) training, and by the police, deploying the Project Servator policing tactic.
See, Check and Notify (SCaN) aims to help businesses and organisations maximise safety and security using their existing resources. Your people are your biggest advantage in preventing and tackling a range of threats, including insider threat, criminal activity, unlawful protest and terrorism.
SCaN training empowers your staff to correctly identify suspicious activity and know what to do when they encounter it. In addition, the skills your staff learn will help them to provide an enhanced customer experience. It helps ensure that individuals or groups seeking to cause your organisation harm are unable to get the information they need to plan their actions.
Project Servator is the policing tactic that enables the police to disrupt hostile reconnaissance. It is different to traditional policing, as officers are specially-trained to spot the tell-tale signs that someone may be conducting hostile reconnaissance. The deployments are highly visible and unpredictable, and involve officers talking to businesses and the public to encourage them to be their extra eyes and ears.
