Counter Terrorism - Act Early


Radicalisation is the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies. If you are worried someone close to you is becoming radicalised act early and seek help. The sooner you reach out, the quicker the police can protect the person you care about from being groomed and exploited by extremists.


Police forces across the country have specially trained Prevent officers who work alongside other organisations through a Home Office programme called Prevent to help people vulnerable to radicalisation move away from violent extremism. They are here to listen and offer help and advice. Receiving support is voluntary.


Friends and family are best placed to spot the signs, so trust your instincts and tell the police your concerns in confidence.


The police can help if you act early. You won't be wasting their time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save someone.
