Project KRAKEN aims to raise awareness among partners and maritime communities' of the process to report suspect and suspicious behavior within the maritime environment. It is also intended to deter those who may be tempted to assist or facilitate the illegal entry of migrants via the maritime environment.

What to report

You should report any unusual or suspicious activity near the UK coastline and in maritime environments immediately. This could include:

  • crew who show signs of nervousness or a lack of awareness of maritime protocols and customs

  • vessels showing signs of unusual modification or minor damage

  • increased activity at isolated coastal locations or at unusual times of the day

  • attempts to signal to vessels offshore or guide them into an unusual location

  • strange patterns of payment, such as large amounts of cash

  • people testing site security or an unusual interest in site structures and wharfs

How to report suspicious activity

If you see anything unusual or suspicious you can report it to your local police on 101, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting 'Kraken'.
