ACT: Action Counters Terrorism

The police and the security and intelligence agencies depend on information from you.

Be our eyes and ears and help keep yourself, your family and your local community safe by looking out for suspicious activity and reporting it to the police, in confidence.

You may see or hear something that could be that vital piece of information needed to stop a terrorist attack.

Although terrorism is rare in the UK, recent events clearly demonstrate that an attack could happen at any time or place without warning. The current threat to the UK stands at SEVERE: an attack is highly likely.

By working together with the police, staying alert and thinking about your safety and security at home or work or when you are out and about, you can make it harder for terrorists to plan or carry out an attack.

For more information about how to report, what to report and what happens when you make a report please visit www.gov.uk/ACT 

Information films about staying safe and how to identify suspicious behaviour are also available here in British Sign Language
