Kraken: protecting our waters

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.

To report suspicious behaviour or activity around our coast line, please use our Report something form and select 'Suspicious behaviour' from the form drop down, or call 101 or 999 in an emergency.


 

What is Project Kraken?

There are over 11,000 miles of British mainland coastline, and a complex network of estuaries, navigable rivers, coves, inlets, ports and harbours, all of which can be exploited by terrorists and serious criminals.

We want you to report any unusual or suspicious behaviour in these and other maritime environments. No matter how trivial it may seem; if it looks out of the ordinary, we want to know about it.

 

 

How can you help us?

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.

 

 

What should you do?

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”.

If you want to anonymously report your information online, visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

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