220 - 25th June 2019
Your invitation - Action Counters Terrorism event

ACT Awareness is a national initiative for businesses produced by Counter Terrorism Policing and the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) to protect our cities and communities from the threat of terrorism.

BID businesses only are invited to an ACT session on Tuesday, 16th July, 3.30pm to 6pm, at Tokko, 7 Gordon Street. This aims to:

• Encourage people to report suspicious activity or behaviour
• Increase public understanding of what activity or behaviour to look out for by highlighting examples of terrorist attack planning methods
• Increase awareness of key reporting channels like gov.uk/ACT
• Reinforce the message that communities defeat terrorism – and the key role the public have to play in helping tackle the terrorist threat
