Samantha Hancock (Police, Crime Prevention Unit Manager, Nottinghamshire) writes: Recent events around the world remind us all of the terrorist threat we face, which in the UK is considered as ‘SEVERE’, meaning an attack is highly likely. Police and security agencies are working tirelessly to protect the public but it is also important that communities remain vigilant and aware of how to protect themselves if the need arises.
The four minute film, Stay Safe: Firearms and Weapons Attack sets out three key steps for keeping safe. The film is accompanied by an online information leaflet.
The film and leaflet advise that if you are caught up in an incident to ‘run, hide and tell’ – guidance which can be applied to many places and situations.
