Wolverhampton Police Message

I have received this information from West Midlands Police.

“All communities will clearly have been affected by the attack in Tunisia.

Police will be working over the coming days and weeks with partners locally to ensure that victims’ families and also wider communities are supported at a very difficult time.

Communities and families are also asked to contact their local police for advice and support about anyone they feel may be potentially vulnerable to being drawn into terrorist related activities. Please contact your local police on 101.

You can also visit the national Prevent Tragedies website for further advice and guidance www.preventtragedies.co.uk

Police support all communities in the UK and will take action against any criminal behaviour, especially where crimes are motivated by hate. Hate crimes are committed by a minority of people and are not representative of wider communities. This is a time for us all to work closely together to help prevent further tragedies.

Through the Government’s Prevent Strategy, the police service works proactively with partners to address all forms of terrorist threat whether from international or domestic terrorism.

The one thing that all terrorists have in common is that they have a strong belief in an idea and they are willing to go to extremes to promote, or bring attention to that idea. Communities can work together to develop resilience to extremist influences which support terrorism, be alert to any groups which target them or use their community spaces for propaganda activities and be vigilant against any people who raise funds destined for illegal activities.

If you see or hear something that you are concerned could be terrorist related call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.Regards, Wolverhampton Police”west midlands police logo
