“Strong Tower was the largest exercise of its kind planned and delivered by the Metropolitan Police and involved twenty-five partner agencies. It tested every level of our response to a marauding terrorist firearms attack.

Brian Dillon’s role was undoubtedly integral to its success – were it not for his dedication, professionalism and leadership the exercise would not have been so successful. I was genuinely impressed by the way in which he personally coordinated the exercise – nothing as complex has been attempted before.”
