Suffolk Police continue to urge residents to be vigilant

posted 24 May 2017, 03:35 by Chris Hoare


With the UK terror threat level being raised to ‘critical’, Suffolk Police are continuing to urge residents to be vigilant.

The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre raised the threat level last night – meaning an attack not only remains highly likely but a further attack may be imminent.

Members of the public may see an increased police presence, including armed units, at key locations and events both within Suffolk and across the country.

Chief Constable Gareth Wilson said: "There is no specific intelligence relating to Suffolk however we continue to ask residents to be vigilant. Policing in the county is under constant review and we are looking at the resources and policing of key events in light of the raised threat level.”

"Military personnel are not currently being deployed – but the threat assessment is continuously under review.”

"Our thoughts remain with those affected by the tragic incident in Manchester.

"We continue to ask members of the public to remain alert, but not alarmed, and advise people to report any suspicious behaviour or activity on the anti-terrorist hotline 0800 789 321 or in an emergency always call 999.”

Latest guidance on recognising the terrorist threat and remaining vigilant can be accessed via www.nactso.gov.uk.
