Greenwich police are urging locals to stay extra vigilant this Christmas and to report any suspicious behaviour.

Project Servator will be working throughout the festive period to keep you safe, so if you see an increased amount of police presence this will be why.

What is Project Servator?

The campaign aims to deter, detect and disrupt a range of criminal activity, including terrorism, while providing a reassuring presence for the public so that we can all have a relaxing Christmas.

A spokesman from the Met Police said: "We believe that 'Together, we've got it covered', so we work with partners, including other police forces, businesses and the public, to continue to protect London and everyone who lives, works or visits here and to make it a difficult place for criminals and terrorists to operate."

Project Servator's patrols are highly visible and can happen at any time and in any location so if you see Project Servator officers in your area, there's nothing to be concerned about.

You'll see, as a minimum, uniform and plain clothes officers, but there might also include officers from other departments such as dog or horse units, the Marine Policing Unit or armed officers depending on the specific requirements.

You have an important role to play in helping to keep London safe by reporting anything that doesn't feel right, for example, an unattended item or someone acting suspiciously.

If you see something suspicious, please tell a police officer, use our online form or call the confidential Anti Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321, or if it's an emergency, call 999.
