The Stansted Airport Policing Team is made up of police officers and Special Constables under the command of an Inspector and a Chief Inspector District Commander.
The team aims to protect people from harm, engage with communities about their concerns, gather information and solve local problems. The police also work with other enforcement agencies using policing tactics to deter and detect criminal and terrorist activity, as well as to reassure the general public.
District Commander: Chief Inspector Richard Phillibrown
Policing an international airport poses challenges over and above those encountered in everyday police work. At Stansted, we are constantly prepared to deal with more specialist incidents, such as terrorist attacks and major incidents relating to the airline industry.
My teams deploy on Project Servator which is an inclusive collaborative community strategy that relies on local people and businesses to be the eyes and ears for the police. With around 12,000 employees and 80,000 passengers travelling through the airport daily I have the largest team in Essex working to keep people safe.
This is only made possible through key partnerships with the airport operator Manchester Airports Group, UK Border Force, airline operators, retailers and all other businesses.
Using intelligence led unpredictable deployments of multi skilled teams in one of the most diverse communities in the county I aim to deploy assets in the right place and at the right time to provide reassurance, reduce crime and deter anti-social behaviour. They will be visible, friendly and engaging, they will ask if you need assistance and assist in making your journey a safe one.
