People in North East Lincolnshire are being urged to take
the ACT Awareness course developed by counter terrorism officers.
By becoming a counter-terror citizen, you will learn to
recognise the signs of suspicious behaviour and understand what to do in the
event of a major incident.
ACT training is available online for free and can be
accessed at any time. The course takes just 45 minutes to complete.
The training was previously only available to professionals
and people working with the public, but is now available to everyone.
Completing the training could save lives or help prevent an
attack from taking place.
Councillor Ron Shepherd, cabinet member for Safer and
Stronger Communities, said: “Terrorism awareness training is vital in the fight
against radicalisation and violent extremism.
“While North East Lincolnshire Council has thankfully not
been subject to a terrorist incident, the national threat level is substantial,
meaning an attack could happen at any time.
By acting as the eyes and ears for the police and local
security team, you can play a significant part in keeping our community and yourself
safe and gain a greater understanding of what to look out for.”
