HGV trainers and transport managers from across the UK are to receive advice on how to prevent their vehicles being used as a weapon of terror in an upcoming conference in June.
Scott Gibbons and Matt Burgess from National Counter Terrorism Policing Headquarters (NCTPHQ) will give the briefing as part of the Talent in Logistics Conference to be held on 22nd June in Telford, West Midlands. The aim of the session is to help such businesses prepare their staff and logistics operations to help to prevent their vehicles being used in an act of terror.
Since the attacks where a vehicle has been used as a weapon, Scott Gibbons has been engaging with the transport industry and partners to jointly work on mitigating this threat. Matt Burgess is also a counter terrorist security coordinator (CTSECCO) with extensive operational policing background, including command experience at major events.
