Trust supports Action Counters Terrorism campaign

Counter Terrorism

The Trust is proud to support Counter Terrorism Policing’s Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) campaign to encourage the public to help the police tackle terrorism and save lives by reporting suspicious behaviour and activity.

With the enduring terrorist threat, it is now more important than ever that everyone plays their part in tackling terrorism. Our actions could save lives.

Like other criminals, terrorists need to plan. If you see or hear something unusual or suspicious trust your instincts and ACT by reporting it in confidence at If it’s an emergency call 999.

Watch the ACT film to learn more:

Some examples of suspicious behaviour or activity include:

  1. Hiring large vehicles or similar for no obvious reasons
