Cheshire Police, together with police forces throughout the United Kingdom, are better trained and equipped than ever before to combat the threat of International and Domestic terrorism.
Who is part of Cheshire Constabulary's counter terrorism strategy?
The Force, as part of the on-going national counter terrorism strategy, has dedicated Counter Terrorism Security Advisers (CTSAs) who are coordinated, trained and tasked by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO), a specialist police organisation co-located with the Security Service in the National Security Advice Centre (NSAC).
What are the roles of Counter Terrorism Security Advisers (CTSAs)?
The primary role of these advisers is to, provide protective and counter terrorism security advice to support businesses. The advice available takes into account both conventional and non-conventional terrorist techniques, and the aim is to reduce vulnerability to terrorist threats. The CTSAs work closely with other police forces throughout the country, government departments and other agencies.
What can I do as a member of the public?
The public can play a key role in supporting the police. They can do this by:
- Remaining vigilant
- Being security minded and having good security measures in place. A small investment in security measures, greatly enhances the feeling of security on behalf of everyone and helps protect those around you.
For non-urgent crime prevention advice, businesses can contact their local Police Crime Reduction Officer, but if you feel that your company could benefit from Counter Terrorism security advice, you can write to the following address:
