Terrorism Advice for Londoners
The terrorist events of 7th and 21st July were criminal acts carried out by
a small number of people. These crimes were not committed by any community.
The Metropolitan Police recognises, however, that communities across London may well feel vulnerable, confused and angry as a result of these events.
The Metropolitan Police will respond quickly and robustly where individuals use the terrorist incidents as an excuse for behaviour motivated by prejudice or hate, and we will be proactive in identifying any tensions
developing within or between communities.
This leaflet details the different ways Londoners can help the Metropolitan
Police in the fight against terrorism, and how information about terrorist
activity can be provided to organisations other than the police. (This is
known as ‘third-party reporting’) It also suggests whom to contact for
further advice and support. Working together, we can defeat terrorism.
‘Communities Together’ Help and Advice Line
In response to recent events in London the Metropolitan Police has set up an advice line to offer advice and reassurance, particularly to those
communities who feel vulnerable as a result of the terrorist attacks.
It is recognised that everyone who lives, works or visits London may be
affected by recent events, but that some people and communities may feel
particularly isolated, concerned and vulnerable, so while the service is
open to all, it is hoped that members of our minority communities will feel
encouraged to contact the advice line, and our staff will provide advice and
support where they can.
The Communities Together Help and Advice line will initially offer a 24-hour service. Call free on 0800 028 2390.
Together we can defeat terrorism.
You can help prevent terrorism in the following ways:
If you suspect it, report it.
If you think you have seen a person acting suspiciously, or if you see an
unattended package or bag which might be a threat, immediately move away and call 999.
Terrorists have to live somewhere. They keep their bomb-making equipment somewhere. They need vehicles. They have people who help them – and these people might come and go at strange times of the day and night. They may make unusual financial transactions. They may be behaving differently to how you’ve known them to behave.
If you have suspicions about somebody’s activities or behaviour, or if you
have any information that might be relevant, call the Anti-Terrorist hotline
on 0800 789 321. Your call will be completely confidential. There’s no need
for you to decide how important it is – the police will decide. You may be
holding a vital link.
Others you could talk to.
You may feel more comfortable talking to one of the organisations listed at
the bottom of the page if you have any information about terrorism. Members of these organisations can then pass the information on to the police so that you can preserve your anonymity.
What do I do if I suffer abuse or am attacked?
We are committed to tackling hate crime and want you to report it so that we can investigate. If you are affected by hate because of who you are or what you believe, contact your local police station, or one of these
