Counterterrorism and Crime Prevention Toolkit

The Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport of the EU (DG-MOVE) contracted the Applied Criminology and Policing Group of the University of Huddersfield to develop, initially, an outline toolkit for preventing and responding to terrorist attacks at complex, multi-modal train stations (those with metro, bus and other connections). This was to be based on a review of academic literature, grey literature, interviews with security managers and site visits across the EU. It then awarded the team a second contract to turn the main elements of the outline into a full-blown interactive toolkit, specifying the use of 5Is, the capability of customisation to local sites and contexts, and the use of multiple EU languages.
