MERSEYSIDE police have urged shoppers to put security at the top of their Christmas lists this year.
With the festive rush about to get under way, Counter Terrorism Policing has launched its biggest winter advertising campaign as part of ACT: Action Counters Terrorism.
While there is no known increased threat to busy town and city centres, people flocking to stock up on Christmas gifts will see police working alongside security personnel to encourage everyone to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious.
Experts from Counter Terrorism Policing will be asking retailers and other businesses who operate in crowded places to think about their contingency plans, asking them to draw up a “Sixty Second Security” plan which has the power to improve their reaction to emergencies.
This security check includes appointing someone to make decisions on the shop floor, emergency entrances and exits in buildings, lock downs, hiding places, procedures in a “Run, Hide, Tell” (RHT) scenario and staff briefings.
The winter campaign aims to encourage the public to remain vigilant, look out for suspicious behaviour and inform people how to report their concerns, providing a “whole society” approach where police, security staff, retail workers and the public come together to minimise the chance of attacks and mitigate the impact they can have.
Launching the campaign, national co-ordinator for Protect And Prepare Ch Supt Nick Aldworth said: “As people are enjoying the festive season they will see a visible security presence with police patrols and additional security in crowded places.’’
No threats have been made but Ch Supt Nick Aldworth said busy areas will have a greater security presence
