Border Force is now the lead agency for General Aviation (GA) and General Maritime (GM). Northamptonshire Police no longer retains a dedicated Ports Officer, however, DC Gill Browne remains an accredited examining officer for the purposes of Schedule 7 of The Terrorism Act 2000.
Northamptonshire has approximately 31 small ports, all of which are non-designated, meaning there are certain requirements placed on pilots arriving from outside mainland UK (see GAR section).
We would encourage all members of the aviation community to report suspicious activity at airfields.
Project Pegasus is an initiative aimed at reducing the threat from organised crime and terrorism (see Project Pegasus).
Project Kraken encourages the maritime community to report suspicious activity. Although Northamptonshire is completely landlocked it does have a network of inland waterways and large maritime community.(see Project Kraken)
If you have any information on suspicious activity at your local port or inland waterway please do not hesitate to contact us no matter how minor you think it is.
