Lisa Sharkey commenting on “Counter Terrorism Awareness Week 2016 (CTAW) is a campaign for the police service and partners to inform the public about the terrorism threat; what is being done to tackle it, how communities can help, and offers practical advice about how to stay safe and vigilant to the threat from terrorism whether at home, in business or online.
The initiative will take place between Monday 28th November and Sunday 4th December 2016; and for each day of the campaign, there will be a focus on a different aspect of counterterrorism and terrorist threats from attack planning; protecting public on matters of online safety; HGV operations; and protecting businesses and crowded places.
Various partners of the campaign will be presenting their guidance and key issues at the UK Security Expo 2016 from Wednesday 30th November until Thursday 1st December 2016 at the Olympia London.
As part of CTAW, advice, information and guidance documents will be published on the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) website at: www.gov.uk/nactso and police forces across the country will be using social media accounts to share and engage in conversations with the public using the hashtags #CTAW2016 and #CounterTerrorismUK
Counterterrorism security advisors across the country will also be working with business and organisations, briefing staff and security managers on how they can protect their premises, staff, and IT systems from attacks.”
