Project Kracken

17 Feb 2023

Project Kraken encourages those who live on the coast or work in the marine industry to be extra vigilant to reduce the threat of terrorism and crime.

We want you to report any unusual or suspicious activity near the coastline and in maritime environments.

This could include:

> Crew who show signs of nervousness or a lack of awareness of maritime protocols and customs.
> Vessels showing signs of unusual modification or minor damage.
> Increased activity at isolated coastal locations or at unusual times of the day.
> Attempts to signal to vessels offshore or guide them into an unusual location.
> Strange patterns of payment, such as large amounts of cash.
> People testing site security or an unusual interest in site structures and wharfs.

If you see unusual or suspicious activity, report it to your local police on 101, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, and quote “KRAKEN”.

Do not take direct action against any individuals or groups. If it is an emergency, call 999.
