>If You Suspect It, Report It!

>

This the message the MPS has put out as part of its latest counter terrorism publicity campaign. It’s an old message put a very relevant one. Click here for the MPS new radio advertisement.
The MPS 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?  
I do find it a bit poor that the Met’s own website actually spells ‘suspicious’ incorrectly (although I admit that my spelling isn’t much better)!
