Information Session on Airport Checks

On Wednesday the 18th of April, we hosted an information session about airport security checks. The session was delivered by Detective Chief Inspector Janet Hudson, Counter Terrorism Policing: North West, in addition to three officers from GMP’s Counter Terrorism Unit.
Taking the form of a Q&A session, the session saw a lively interaction between the audience and members of the panel. Topics covered included: Schedule 7 legislation, the definition of a border area and the different agencies operating there, the nature of examination and questioning, the grounds for stopping and questioning people, and the types of questions asked.
The session attracted a large number of attendants and our multi-facility room was full.
