Thames Valley Police trial terrorism disruption network

Project Servator, a policing tactic used to disrupt a range of criminality, including terrorism, will be trialled across the Thames Valley from this week (17 June).

The approach sees police, businesses, local partners and the public working together to create a network of vigilance, to disrupt the information-gathering and planning that criminals need to do.

Deployments of the tactic involve a combination of highly visible elements, including uniformed officers, dogs and their Mounted Section, as well as less visible measures such as plain-clothed police officers, our Drone Unit and CCTV. 

Plain clothes police officers blend in with the crowd while uniformed police officers engage with the public to provide reassurance and raise awareness of the role the community can play in preventing crime. Project Servator deployments will never involve just plain clothes officers and they will always be working with uniformed police officers.

Project Servator has been successful in gathering intelligence that has assisted Counter Terrorism Units in investigating and preventing acts of terror.
