Counter-terror campaign

by msecadm4921

One phone call to police could save lives – that’s the message of a new counter-terrorism publicity campaign launched by the Metropolitan Police, on Monday, February 13. Everyone who works, lives and visits London has a role to play in helping to counter the terrorist threat which remains real and serious, say police.


Police say that they fully understand that people may be reluctant to tell them about suspicious activity or behaviour – but they stress that all calls to the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline are taken by trained officers and information is thoroughly analysed and researched before, and if, any action
is taken. No piece of information is considered too small or insignificant.

Suspicious activity could include someone who has bought or stored large amounts of chemicals,
fertilisers or gas cylinders for no obvious reason; who has bought or hired a vehicle in suspicious
circumstances; who holds passports or other documents in different names for no obvious reason; or who travels for long periods of time, but is vague about where they’re going.

The four-week campaign: “It’s probably nothing, but …” consists of local newspaper adverts and one 40-second radio ad across London. Leaflets will also be distributed to 1.4 million households in the capital. For further information, see the Metropolitan Police website.
