Prevent Team


Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism. It is part of the Government Counter Terrorism strategy and is designed to tackle the problem of terrorism at its roots by providing support and a safeguarding package from a range of different agencies such as the local council, education, health sector, police and probation services to prevent people from supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

Stop Terrorists' and Extremists' Online Presence


Tackling extremist material is important to protect the public and prevent offences that incite or promote terrorism and extremism.

The internet and social media provides many opportunities for those with extreme views to target young or vulnerable individuals. 

The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit put considerable effort into removing terrorist and extremist material however communities defeat terrorism, which is why we must maintain the strong relationship between the public and police.

Police depend on information from the public in our efforts to keep us all safe and we are asking anyone who has concerns about online content to report it by clicking the STOP Terrorists’ & Extremists’ Online button.
