08 Nov Essex Police see Project Servator launched at Stansted Airport
Beginning Monday, November 7 Essex Police will be deploying specialist assets at Stansted airport as part of Project Servator.
Project Servator will see highly-visible yet unpredictable police deployments designed to deter, disrupt and detect criminal activity – from shoplifting and pickpocketing to more serious crime including terrorism.
They involve both uniformed and plain-clothed officers, supported by other resources such as armed officers, police dogs, a network of CCTV cameras, security staff and hundreds of retailers we work in partnership with.
Superintendent Adrian Coombs Police Airport Commander said: “The safety and security of Stansted Airport is a priority for our force, and we are pleased to be implementing Project Servator here.
One of the key elements of Project Servator is unpredictability, so don’t be surprised if you see a visible police presence pop up at various times and locations across the whole airport using different resources.
Our officers are here to keep you safe and I’d encourage members of the public to speak to us if they have any concerns.
You can play an important role by being vigilant and reporting any suspicious behaviour either to an officer or by calling 01279 680 298. You can also email: ProjectServatorSTN@essex.pnn.police.uk. Please use 999 if an immediate response is required.
