Operation Griffin entails police forces working together to tell the public about their important role in protecting the capital from terrorist attacks.

Activities across the borough this week have encouraged residents to be vigilant and learn to protect themselves from threats.

Officers have been on hand to talk to businesses and residents, as well as manning a security-focused traffic operation, with officers from Metropolitan Police Special Constabulary and Cadets leafleting and engaging with the public.

Commander Simon Bray, from Specialist Operations, said: “Everyone has a role to play in keeping London safe from terrorism. This operation sees specialist officers working closely with neighbourhood officers and communities raising awareness of security in London. We want to build on the success of Project Griffin and continue our engagement with communities and businesses in a variety of ways to counter the threat from terrorism.”
