How can you help Terrorist intent on carrying out deadly and determined attacks will conduct what is referred to as ‘hostile reconnaissance. One of the most significant contributions anyone can make in combating terrorism is to remain vigilant and alert to such behaviour at all times. Look for suspicious behaviour or activity. Have any security measures been tampered with or breached? Why is someone taking photographs in a vulnerable area? Why are they taking note of security measures in place? If your suspicions are raised call the police and try to monitor the person’s movements. Otherwise call the Anti Terrorist Hot Line 0800 789321 and pass as much detail as possible. Your information could be the vital link in preventing a terrorist attack. For more detailed guidance speak with your local CTSA. Alternatively go to www.nactso.gov.uk. Security advice is provided to those business areas and premises that may be at risk from terrorist activity. For crime prevention advice, please contact your local police Crime Prevention Officer.
