The Counter Terrorism presentation has been developed to help update those living and working across the Borough of the current national threat from terrorism as well as outline the simple steps that can be taken to help protect ourselves and our community. In a nutshell, we will cover:

  • The current threat
  • Hostile Reconnaissance (suspicious behaviour)
  • Bombs/IEDs
  • Suspicious items and how to respond to them
  • Firearms and weapons attacks – what to do if you are caught up in one

How do rogue traders approach and target their victims these days?

Do join us for this fascinating talk from Trading Standards. Hear all about:

  • The current trends
  • The typical ‘patter’
  • How properties are marked to identify the vulnerability of the occupier
  • How rogue traders pass their victim’s details on to others.
