Counter Terrorism Policing update

The Community Safety Services at Oxfordshire County Council advise that there are free links for ACT e-learning for staff/volunteers in businesses and members of the public. With lockdown measures easing in the coming weeks and more people returning to towns and cities, Counter Terrorism Policing need people to return to being vigilant when out and about.

A police appeal to the public to take part in the Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) e-learning course while working at home, has resulted in nearly 70,000 signing up to be ‘CT Citizens’. Overall half a million participants have responded to the call since the course was launched two years ago.

The interactive course, which is available to companies or private individuals, takes just 45 minutes to complete and can be done all in one go or in short modules. It explains how to spot the signs of suspicious behaviour and what to do to help yourself, others and the emergency responders if an attack should take place.
