Police Scotland Counter Terrorism sessions

The University is offering staff the opportunity to attend information sessions which focus on the updated terrorist threat and response to a terrorist attack.

  • Attack methodology
  • Bomb Threat Management (search/evacuation/suspect packages)
  • Hostile Reconnaissance – Recognising Terrorist Attack Planning
  • Firearms Incidents

These sessions are open to all University of Aberdeen staff. Project Griffin sessions will be delivered between the following times on dates and venues as follows:

  • Thursday 19 April 2018 - 1000 - 1230 hours - NK14

Project Argus

Project ARGUS is aimed at managers in businesses and institutions located within crowded places in urban settings.  Project ARGUS will raise awareness about the threat from terrorism, and what can be done to increase business resilience.

By taking delegates through a simulated terrorist attack, it identifies priorities and measures to take for preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack and provides a unique opportunity to both learn from and contribute to lessons helping to protect businesses and communities.  Project ARGUS highlights the importance of being prepared and having the necessary plans in place to protect people, buildings and reputations.

This interactive session is open to all University of Aberdeen managers, in particular those involved in, or responsible for emergency and business continuity planning.

At present, only one Project Argus session is being scheduled, which will be delivered as follows:

  • Friday 20 April 2018 - 1000 – 1230 hours  -  NK14
