Answered By: 
The Mayor

The MPS continues to conduct a pilot of Project Servator, which is designed to both deter and reassure, across Lambeth and Wandsworth.  The team have focussed their activity on 18 sites and conducted over 6000 individual engagements with businesses and members of the public, raising CT awareness among them.  The Servator team proved invaluable in providing an additional tactical option when the MPS considered how it should respond to the Berlin terrorist attack with the team being used at key locations in the Capital.
