Project ARGUS is a National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) initiative, exploring ways to aid you in preventing, handling and recovering from a terrorist attack. It achieves this by taking businesses through a simulated terrorist attack.

NaCTSO has developed a series of Project ARGUS sessions that are adapted to suit different sectors: Retailers; Bars and Restaurants; Hotels and “Argus Professional”, which is for architects, planners and engineers. The forthcoming session is the “Retailer” scenario, which is ideally suited to office based and retail sector colleagues.

Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Police Counter Terrorism Unit is providing the next session free of charge thanks to Birmingham City Centre Partnership sponsorship as part of the Birmingham City Centre Purple Flag programme. The Purple Flag programme was developed following the Civic Trust Night Vision report in 2006, and is run by the Association of Town Centre Management, London. The accreditation of the Purple Flag Week process is similar to Green Flag Award for parks and Blue Flag for beaches. It leads to Purple Flag status for town centres that meet or surpass the standards of excellence in the evening and night-time economy.

Details of the next Project Argus are as follows:

Time: 9am – 12:30pm
