Security should be top of the festive list
Counter Terrorism Policing is asking the business community to support its campaign to help keep crowded places safe over the festive period.
Officers from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office are calling on the public and those who work in our busy towns and cities to remain vigilant and report any concerns to staff, security or – in confidence – to the police at gov.uk/ACT.
This annual campaign asks everyone to be the extra eyes and ears of the police and work together to tackle terrorism. With Christmas just around the corner, the campaign encourages the public to remain vigilant, look out for suspicious behaviour and informs people how to report their concerns. The aim is that this will provide a ‘whole society’ approach where police, security staff, retail workers and the public come together to minimise the chance of attacks and mitigate the impact they can have.
