Together, we’ve got it covered
At Liverpool John Lennon Airport, keeping you safe and secure is our number one priority. We are committed to working with our partners, including Merseyside Police and Wilson James Security to make this happen.
We use a range of security measures to keep you safe. Some of these are highly visible and others you won’t be able to see. They include:
Professional aviation security staff, live-monitored CCTV, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), vehicle checkpoints, dogs, the latest innovative threat-screening technology for bag searches and scanning.
Our staff are there to help keep you safe. It’s all part of ensuring you have the faster, easier and friendlier experience that the airport is renowned for, so don’t be surprised if a member of staff says hello and asks if they can help – they’re just looking out for you.
We also engage regularly with community groups to act as extra eyes and ears and help the police protect the airport from criminal and terrorist activity.
We work in close partnership with the police to ensure your safety and security. You will see Merseyside Police here, carrying out Project Servator deployments. These are highly visible, unpredictable deployments, designed to disrupt a range of criminality, including terrorism. They involve officers specially-trained to spot the tell-tale signs that someone may be planning or preparing to commit a crime.
On some deployments, police dogs, plain-clothes officers and armed officers will be used. The police officers liaise with our staff and they’ll happily talk to you about Project Servator, so feel free to chat with them. You can find out more about Project Servator on the Merseyside Police website.
