Project Servator Goes London Wide

Project Servator

Project Servator, a policing tactic that is designed to deter, detect and disrupt all forms of criminal activity, including terrorism, has gone live across London.

Servator was first utilised in the City of London. Project Servator sees the deployment of specially trained highly visible and covert police officers, supported by other resources such as dogs, firearms officers, marine police units, plain clothes officers, vehicle checkpoints, Automatic Number Plate Recognition CCTV.

The Ministry of Defence Policing (MDP) unit has had a fully trained Project Servator team operating from its Whitehall station since February 2018 and working in partnership with colleagues in the Metropolitan Police Service and the British Transport Police on Servator deployments in and around the Whitehall area.

MDP Deputy Chief Constable Peter Terry, said: "Joint Servator deployments in and around Whitehall add an extra dimension to the existing security arrangements that are already in place and provide a highly visible and reassuring police presence for the public. The positive feedback we have received from our customers and the public testifies to the positive impact of Project Servator in providing reassurance and encouraging community engagement."

In addition to Whitehall, the MDP also has Project Servator teams operating at the Atomic Weapons Establishment sites in Berkshire and at Portsmouth Naval Base. Project Servator on the Clyde in conjunction with Police Scotland is in launch phase.
