Working together with Nottingham Forest, Counter Terrorism Policing wants Christmas security all wrapped up.
Forest fans are being asked to put security at the top of their ‘must have’ lists this Christmas as they visit The City Ground.
With the festive season well underway, Counter Terrorism Policing has launched its biggest-ever winter advertising campaign as part of ACT: Action Counters Terrorism.
While there is no known increased threat to football stadia, the club and local police are working alongside security personnel to encourage everyone to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious.
Experts from Counter Terrorism Policing have asked the club to think about their contingency plans, asking them to draw up a ‘Sixty Second Security’ plan which has the power to improve their reaction to emergencies.
Across the country, security messaging will appear on advertising boards and digital screens around crowded Christmas events and key shopping locations, reminding the public about the crucial role they play in helping to tackle the terrorist threat.
The winter advertising campaign aims to encourage the public to remain vigilant, look out for suspicious behaviour and inform people how to report their concerns, providing a ‘whole society’ approach where police, security staff, club staff and supporters come together to minimise the chance of attacks and mitigate the impact they can have.
We advise the public to remain vigilant and, if they see or hear something suspicious, trust their instincts and report it to police in confidence at gov.uk/ACT or 0800 789 321.
