ACSO Statement on Reading Incident
An award-winning counter terrorism training course is being made available to the public for the first time and police want you to sign up and help
protect the UK.
Counter Terrorism Policing is asking you to support our campaign to help keep crowded places safe over the festive period.
The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory’s Ministry of Defence Police led a major exercise which brought together regional first-responders, highly-trained hostage negotiators from the Metropolitan Police and other key security services staff to model the response to a major incident.
Members of the public should always remain alert to the danger of terrorism and report any suspicious activity to
the police on 999 or via the confidential hotline: 0800 789 321. Advice to assist you to identify suspect packages are contained in this article.
Although terrorist attacks are rare within our community, it remains as important as ever that the public remain vigilant and aware of how they can protect themselves if the need arises.
The events in Salisbury in 2018 led to one of the most complex and intensive pieces of work undertaken by Counter Terrorism Policing of the year, and are a timely reminder that major incidents can occur anywhere.
Wiltshire and Swindon LRF urges the public to help the police tackle terrorism and save lives by reporting suspicious behaviour and activity. Reporting it won’t ruin lives, but it might save them. If it doesn’t feel right, ACT !
Working together with communities, Counter Terrorism Policing wants Christmas security all wrapped up. Shoppers are being asked to put security at the top of their ‘must have’ lists this Christmas.
With the festive rush about to get underway, Counter Terrorism Policing is today, Monday 19th November, launching its biggest-ever winter advertising campaign as part of ACT: Action Counters Terrorism.
Acts of terrorism in the UK are rare but sadly there is a likelihood that terrorists will try to attack us. Recent events around the world are a reminder of the threat we face. Wiltshire and Swindon are safe places to live and work.
While concerted action by the police and security services takes place every day to protect the public it is important for communities to be alert, not alarmed. Locally, all agencies have an important role to play in the fight against terrorism and they all work together on a regular basis to mitigate the threat.
Counter Terrorism Policing have enlisted the support of celebrities from entertainment and sport to launch their first-ever safety campaign aimed at children and teenagers.
With the UK terror threat level at SEVERE, children will be taught to RUN if they are able to, HIDE if they are not, and TELL police of the threat only when it is safe to do so. They will also be advised to warn others about an on-going threat, and crucially told NOT to stop and use their phones until they are safely away from danger.
