Supported by the G20 Inter Faith Forum, and being conducted by 5 Law Enforcement Agencies from Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Sweden, the PROTECTOR project will design, develop and deliver the next generation of integrated measures to enhance the protection of all places of worship. Combining expertise from leading academic institutions and private sector organisations, the PROTECTOR project will significantly enhance the protection of places of worship through the assessment of hate crime and terrorism threats, examining protective security measures and Law Enforcement Agency responses. To achieve the general objective of PROTECTOR, technology tools will be developed and tested to enhance the situational awareness, operational decision-making and investigative capability of Law Enforcement Agencies when preventing and responding to hate crimes and terrorist incidents at places of worship. PROTECTOR will also develop Law Enforcement Agency, public authority and faith leadership protective security awareness expertise through the development and implementation of accessible training tools. PROTECTOR will also establish and strengthen cooperation between public authorities and faith- based leaders and congregations through the development and implementation of an engagement strategy, and the design and delivery of a security awareness raising campaign, encouraging the reporting of suspicious behaviour and the promotion of appropriate responses to threats.
