What is happening in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland?

Terrorism is a real and serious threat to us all. To counter the terrorist threat, we need to all work together to tackle the terrorist challenge.
We are working closely with key partner agencies and communities to tackle any extremism.

What can you do to help?

Although there is no specific threat to Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, it is important that the public remain alert and aware of their surroundings. Together we can fight terrorism and make our communities safer.

Report it

We want to hear from anyone who sees anything suspicious, be it a vehicle, package or person. These are difficult to define and we advise people to rely on instinct about whether something is suspicious. In any case we would prefer people to call us if in any doubt.

We will act on it

We will act on information from the public and potential security risks will be taken seriously. This might mean that sometimes roads are closed and buildings evacuated but we are sure that people in the region understand that public safety must always be our first concern and would react in their usual patient manner.

Protecting you

We are also sending a clear message that we will take action to protect the right of all communities to pursue their way of life as they wish, free of the fear of violence and intimidation.

Helping us to help you

Vigilance on the part of the public is one of the best ways of preventing and detecting crime, including terrorist crime. We firmly believe that communities defeat terrorism. Please let us know if you have any suspicions. We don’t mind if it proves to be a false alarm.

Report online material promoting terrorism or extremism

The internet and social media provides many opportunities for those with extreme views to target young or vulnerable individuals.  The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit puts considerable effort into removing terrorist and extremist material however, communities defeat terrorism, which is why we must maintain the strong relationship between the public and police. Police depend on information from the public in efforts to keep us all safe and we are asking anyone who has concerns about online content to report it.
