Counter Terrorism Awareness Week launches across Scotland

Wed 5 Jul 17

We have been given some advice materials from the Police Scotland Counter Terrorism Unit in light of the tragic terror attacks of both London and Manchester that we thought you might find useful.

Police Scotland has launched a week of action to promote Counter Terrorism activity across the country.

From Monday 12 until Sunday 18 June, specialist and local officers will be working together, along with a number of partners to undertake a range of activities throughout Scotland, aimed at providing the public with useful information to help deter terrorism and keep them safe in the event of a terrorist incident.

The main message across this information is that people and businesses can reduce risk to themselves, their employees and customers by staying vigilant, being security minded and having good security measures in place. We would urge you to review these advice materials:
