Campaign to 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.

From Friday, April 15 at 7.00am, a 36-hour period of intensive activity will take place in the Counter Terrorism Intranet Referral Unit (CTIRU) as part of the STOP Terrorists’ & Extremists’ Online Presence campaign

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.
