The suggestion calls for a lead forum attended by a representative from each individual forum, with messages from each forum, which can then be cascaded down.

DCI Service added: “We would encourage the forum leads to include medium and small businesses in their footprint and take the messages and advice back with them, and in turn, they could bring feedback back to us.”

See something? Trust your instincts

While this initiative is in development, the City of London Police continues to ask that if you see suspicious activity in the City, or someone watching a building when you think they shouldn’t be, trust your instincts – don’t wait, report it immediately by calling 999.

If you currently sit on a business, security or community forum in the City and would like to express an interest in a new lead forum, please contact:

Terrorism Police outline tactical options for private companies


ational Counter

Terrorism Police have launched a new set of tactical options for the private sector to help enhance security at times of raised terrorism threat levels or in response to a terrorist incident.

The National Menu of Stakeholder Tactical Options has been designed to complement the work of the police during these periods.

The menu, available to any company via the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) website, gives an overview of the UK terrorism threat level system and terrorist attack methodology. It also provides general advice on principles to apply when making decisions, assessing areas to prioritise, and considering what to include when drawing up contingency plans.

Then follows a list of tactical options companies could employ for different

circumstances – including times of normality, increased threat or attack.

Superintendent Dave Roney, from the national Protect and Prepare office, says, "The document has been developed with the assistance of security experts and is presented in a short and concise format.

"The options will be kept under review by police and in the event of a significant change to the threat picture, or a major incident, they will be updated with any relevant additional information."

As part of its partnership working, NaCTSO is also reminding companies operating in tier one and two crowded places that they can receive a potential 2.5% reduction on their terrorism insurance if they can demonstrate compliance with Counter Terrorism Security Advisors’s survey guidance through use of online tools.

The initiative, which won best Innovative Product at the Commercial Insurance Awards, was developed in association with the insurance industry's Pool Re and HM Treasury.
