The threat from terrorism in the UK, related to conflicts abroad, is of great concern. So too is the number of people being radicalised or drawn into terrorist-related activities at home and abroad.
Communities and families are asked to contact police about anyone they feel may be vulnerable.
Call the police on 101 if you:
- are concerned about someone travelling to, or returning from, a conflict zone
- are worried about someone showing signs of being radicalised
- would like support or advice on radicalisation or terrorist-related activities
Trust your instincts and help prevent tragedies.
Communities defeat terrorism
You can help the police tackle terrorism and save lives by reporting suspicious behaviour and activity online.
