On Monday 18th September, a newly branded Project PEGASUS campaign was launched across the country. As you may know, this is the joint Border Force, National Crime Agency and Police initiative to increase vigilance in and around the UK’s airfields.
Serious and organised criminals and terrorists can exploit GA for crimes ranging from illegal immigration, importing drugs and trafficking firearms. Therefore, the aim of the campaign is to encourage the public to report unusual or suspicious activity which may be an indicator of criminal activity.
