Project Servator

Project Servator is a policing tactic that aims to reassure the public. It targets criminal activity, including terrorism. 

We work with partners, including businesses and security staff, to keep Scotland safe. The aim is to make Scotland a difficult place for criminals and terrorists.

Project Servator has been successful in gathering intelligence. It has helped Counter Terrorism Units investigate and prevent acts of terror.

It has also resulted in arrests. It helps remove firearms, knives and drugs from the streets.

If a Project Servator deployment is happening where you are, there’s nothing to worry about. They are normal police deployments.

Project Servator deployments are highly visible and unpredictable.

They can happen at any time, anywhere. They are made up of specially trained uniformed and plain clothes officers.

They can involve a wide range of other specialist police resources such as police dogs and horses.

Officers also make use of a range of technology including CCTV cameras and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR).

Officers will speak to people and local businesses to let them know what they are doing.

They will remind them to be vigilant, trust their instincts and report any suspicious or unusual behaviour.

You may also see officers handing out leaflets explaining what Project Servator is or posters on display.

Working with the community is vital to making Project Servator a success. If you have any questions please feel free to talk to our officers.

Our teams also work with partners such as British Transport Police, security staff and CCTV operators to carry out deployments.  
You have an important part to play.  Report anything that doesn’t feel right, for example an unattended item or someone acting suspiciously.

We’ll always take your report seriously.

• Tell a police officer or member of security or retail staff
• Call 101 (police non-emergency number)
• In an emergency, always call 999
