Security Company helping to protect from terror

Response Security Solutions Ltd based in Kent, recently volunteered a number of their experienced security staff to participate in Project Griffin, a nationwide police initiative to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism. It brings together and coordinates the resources of the police, emergency services, local authorities, business and the private sector security industry.

Twenty members of Response Security Solutions team attended the training, which taught them how to recognise terrorist activity and hostile reconnaissance, as well as preparing them to manage the scene of a terrorist attack, until the emergency services are able to take over should the unthinkable happen.

Response Security Solutions Ltd provide a number of security services including security dogs, crowd management and event security in Kent to festivals, family fun days and air shows in the South of England.

Senior Security Consultant, Andy Hollinson; said “we are often contracted to look after the security and safety at large outdoor events, some exceeding 30,000 people a day, it is therefore vital that our team are trained highly, and work to assist the emergency services in preventing terrorist attacks.

At many outdoor events the police are no longer present due to the additional cost faced by organisers or the need to meet their core duties, our team need to be able to provide a safe enjoyable experience for our client’s customers, and therefore continuous professional development training such as this is essential”

The senior management team at Response Security Solutions Ltd, also attended one of the first trial sessions for Project Argus (events) a similar scheme aimed at organisers of mass events.

Project Argus also a NACTSO initiative, explores ways to aid in preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack. It achieves this by taking event organisers through a simulated terrorist attack. The simulation identifies the measures to take for preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack.
