Project Kraken delivers an enhanced crime and counter terrorist vigilance capability within the maritime environment of the Solent and the harbours and estuaries of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Key stakeholders such as harbourmasters, the coastguard and marina managers, together with people who live or work in, or adjacent to, the marine environment, or who spend their leisure time on or near our waters, are encouraged to report any suspicious activity.
It is the maritime community who are best placed to recognise what is out of the ordinary.
Project Kraken forms part of the National Maritime Security Strategy and has now been adopted by 90 per cent of UK police forces who have the responsibility for a coastline and significant inland waterways. Project Kraken is co-ordinated locally to deal with local issues within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
The aim of Project Kraken is to provide a hostile environment to terrorists and criminals looking to disrupt the everyday lives and safety of those who live, work or travel through the Solent.
Hampshire Constabulary will post a quarterly newsletter providing a summary of incidents, both national and international, that may be of interest. The force will also circulate details of property and crime trends. This information will also be sent direct to harbour authorities, marinas, boatyards and sailing clubs.
If you suspect it, report it. Call 101 and quote Project Kraken, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We publish a newsletter each quarter:
