Following the terrorist attacks in a number of countries, most recently Denmark, we have been reviewing, alongside our partners, our overall security posture.
In August 2014 the national threat level was raised to SEVERE which means a terrorist attack in the UK is highly likely. At that time we took a number of additional steps to protect communities and the public including additional armed patrols and more visible policing.
Following the attacks in Paris and Denmark there remain heightened concerns about the risk to the Jewish community in the UK. In addition to our existing security measures we are in dialogue with Jewish Community leaders about further actions that we will be taking, including more patrols in key areas. We also remain alert to the vulnerabilities of other communities and where we do have particular concerns we will make them known to those involved.
We all have a part to play in tackling violent extremism, we must all keep a look out for our neighbours. We ask for the support of all communities to help combat this threat as the resolve of our strong communities will eventually help to defy the twisted ideology of extremists who wish to bring harm amongst us.
