Griffin by numbers
January 17 sees the 100th Griffin training session in the City of London – an outstanding milestone and we take the opportunity to highlight some of the key Griffin numbers:
Since its inception in 2004 in the City of London, 10,000 people have attended Griffin. And there are at least 50 City businesses supporting the project.
All 43 Police Forces in England and Wales now hold Griffin sessions, as do all Scottish forces.
8 countries and capital cities, including the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Singapore and Hong King have implemented or are considering implementing Griffin.
The Vancouver Griffin trained its 1,000th person in 2012.
There have been close to 1,500 Griffin bridge calls over the past nine years, with approaching 500 of those in the City of London and a similar number in Dorset, with 100 in Manchester and Strathclyde.
Up to 17,000 lapel pins have been produced and are proudly worn by Griffin trained guards around the world.
For just the month of July in 2011, more than 2,000 people took the Griffin Refresher package.
