Be vigilant in the run up to Christmas

Published Wednesday, 21 November 2018

A national campaign has been launched and is backed by West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit, reminding people to be alert and help keep events and crowded places safe by reporting anything suspicious.

Communities defeat terrorism

Throughout the year, both West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit and West Midlands Police work together with event organisers, partners and commercial organisations across the region to give advice and guidance on safety and security measures.

While there’s no specific threat to an event or venue, the threat level for the UK remains at Severe, and last year’s events showed us that attacks can happen at any time or place without warning.

The police’s priority is the safety and security of all those attending events and the public are encouraged to continue with their plans to enjoy these

However members of the public can help to keep the events and areas safe by being vigilant for anyone or anything that looks out of place or suspicious and reporting it to a member of staff, security or police

You can also get in touch to report anything suspicious confidentially via www.gov.uk/ACT or 0800 789 321.  In an emergency always call 999.
