National Counter Terrorism Awareness Week

This week, police and partner agencies will work together to deliver activity and events across the country, to increase vigilance amongst the general public, businesses and the transport community.

Activity will focus on five key areas, where simple measures and an increased understanding could help to prevent an act of terrorism. Each day will feature a different theme: crowded places, transport hubs, preventing violent extremism, terrorist financing and the tools terrorists need to operate.

In North Yorkshire, each theme will be supported by different engagement activity, ranging from security briefings for sports venues, retailers, leisure parks and transport operators, to the delivery of public advice in community venues, universities and shopping centres.

Targeted police operations will also take place at key sites across the force area in an effort to disrupt terrorist activity, or criminal efforts which may help to fund or support terrorist objectives.

By working together we can make it harder for terrorists to operate in the UK. Through increased awareness and vigilance we can reduce their opportunities and disrupt their activities to better protect our communities, our businesses and industry.

If you suspect it, report it. Anyone with concerns about suspicious activity or behaviour is asked to contact the Confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321. In the case of an immediate threat, always dial 999.
