Beating terrorism

You know your neighbourhood better than anyone. You are best placed to recognise unusual activity.

If you think that you may have seen something suspicious or you are unsure about someone's activities or behaviour, however insignificant it may seem at the time, call the Anti-Terrorism Hotline on 0800 789 321.

What can be suspicious?

  • Are new or temporary residents behaving in an unusual manner? Are they coming and going at unusual times? Are they using a variety of vehicles? Are they vague about where they are going when they travel?
  • If you rent out vehicles or residential or lock-up premises, are your customers or tenants displaying unusual behaviour?
  • Do you know people with several mobile phones? Have they been taking photographs for no obvious reason? Are they wearing protective clothing, masks, goggles, gloves etc? Has someone acquired chemicals for no obvious reason?

Be alert to behaviour in your neighbourhood. If in doubt, share your concerns with local officers or on the Anti-Terrorism Hotline 0800 789 321.
