>Counter Terrorism Publicity Campaign Launched In London Today


“It’s probably nothing” but your call could save lives – that’s the message of a new (??) counter-terrorism publicity campaign launched by the Metropolitan Police Service today (although is does appear to be a reincarnation of previous campaigns). I do think the message is a good one and at the end of the day the Police can’t be everywhere but they really need to step things up a little to fully engage the public and commercial businesses – which after all is what they are trying to achieve at a national level! 

The four week campaign consists of two 40-second radio adverts and three press adverts which will feature on radio stations and in newspapers across London.

Just one piece of information could be vital in helping disrupt
terrorist planning and, in turn, save lives 
Police want people to look out for the unusual – some activity or behaviour which strikes them as not quite right and out of place in their normal day to day lives e.g.:
  • Terrorists need storage – Lock-ups, garages and sheds can all be used by terrorists to store equipment. Are you suspicious of anyone renting commercial property?
  • Terrorists use chemicals – Do you know someone buying large or unusual quantities of chemicals for no obvious reason?
  • Terrorists need funding – Cheque and credit card fraud are ways of generating cash. Have you seen any suspicious transactions?
  • Terrorists use multiple identities – Do you know someone with documents in different names for no obvious reason?
  •  Terrorists need information – Do you someone taking an interest in security, like CCTV cameras for no obvious reason?
  •  Terrorists need transport – If you work in commercial vehicle hire or sales, has a sale or rental made you suspicious?
The radio ads are available here Advert One and Advert Two via Audioboo.
