Operation Kraken: Counter Terrorist Strategy for the Solent

Project Kraken helps to protect the waters of the Solent by providing a mechanism for reporting unusual activity or behaviour within the maritime environment, believed or suspect to be linked to acts or preparatory acts of terrorism

Project Kraken provides for the collation and assessment of all information and intelligence relating to such suspicious activity or behaviour in circumstances that could be linked to terrorist activity or acts of  a preparatory nature.

What do we ask of you

Quite simply, to call the central telephone number whenever you see any activity or behaviour that you feel is suspicious and which may be connected with acts or preparatory acts of terrorism or serious crime.

You can register with Project Kraken to receive timely information updates by email, and a quarterly newsletter providing a summary of national and international incidents that might be of interest.

You will be added to a distribution list for emails and mobile phones, and where appropriate circulated urgent information and intelligence updates. At times of heightened risk or threat level, the Project Kraken team may wish to contact you with specific reports and requests to enable you to assist in ‘observing and reporting’ for a particular individual, or group of vessels.

If you suspect it report it call 0845 045 45 45 and quote Project Kraken
