Border Force Demonstrations

Border Force

Border Force is a law enforcement command within the Home Office who secure the UK border by carrying out immigration and customs controls for people and goods entering the UK.

Border Force do not only target drugs, but also protect the border and the UK from firearms, products of animal origin and people trafficking to name a few. One of their main areas of expertise is vehicle examination.

Expert staff use a range of methods including hi-tech search equipment and visual checks to detect people, illegal and restricted goods that criminals attempt to bring into the country.

Their search of vehicle courses are considered world class. Dedicated teams train and develop Officers nationally and internationally in techniques and skills to find a variety of items in spaces and adaptions that can surprise even the most experienced of Officers.

Come and see their classic camper, it’s a perfect example of how space can be utilised within a vehicle and it also has its own little secret! It pulled along one of Border Force's boats – a tactical watercraft and its underwater drone. You will also find a number of items that have been adapted and disguised to help the modern day smuggler. Plus, how about meeting Butch our Border Force Dog and his handler Jamie? Border Force will be putting on practical demonstrations throughout both days of the event.

NDRT (National Deep Rummage Team) are also along with Border Force, who are renown worldwide for their expertise in teaching and searching commercial vessels, utilising breathing apparatus, medical equipment for confined space search and rescue. NDRT work closely with NCA and other intelligence agencies to disrupt the supply of drugs entering the UK via the sea. CVRT (Commercial Vessel Rummage Training) are the trainers of the NDRT and have been tasked with training custom equivalents, narcotics police, and military assets  from all over the world.

You will find Border Force exhibiting in the Government Zone.
