Project Servator deployments will form an important part of the policing operation for COP26. Project Servator is a policing tactic which aims to disrupt a range of criminal activity, including terrorism, while providing a reassuring presence for the public. Our officers are experienced and specially trained to spot the tell-tale signs that someone is planning or preparing to commit an act of crime.
We will be working closely with partners, local business and members of the community to continue to protect our streets and everyone who lives, works or visits here and to make it difficult for criminals and terrorists to operate.
