Project Servator

Project Servator aims to disrupt a range of criminal activity, including terrorism, while providing a reassuring presence for the public.

We are working with partners, including businesses and the public, to continue to protect all of Belfast Harbour and everyone who lives, works or visits here and make it a difficult place for criminals and terrorists to operate.

Our Project Servator deployments are highly visible and unpredictable and can happen at any time, anywhere.

What we will do

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

They are made up of a range of resources including police officers, police dogs, vehicle checkpoints and Smart CCTV.

Officers will talk to the public and local businesses to let them know what they are doing and remind them to be vigilant, trust their instincts and report any suspicious or unusual activity. You may also see officers handing out leaflets explaining what Project Servator is, or posters on display.

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

We also work with partners, such as Police Service of Northern Ireland, UK Border Force, Customs and Excise, security staff and CCTV operators to carry out deployments. Together, we’ve got it covered.

What we need you to do

You have an important role to play in helping to make Project Servator a success by reporting anything that doesn’t feel right, for example an unattended item or someone acting suspiciously.

You can report your concerns to officers who are out and about. Alternatively, you can call Belfast Harbour Police on 028 9055 3000 or call 999 in an emergency.

We also need you to remain vigilant while out and about, and to follow national ACT (Action Counters Terrorism) guidance. More information on what to look out for and how to contact police can be found at www.gov.uk/ACT.
