Counter Terrorism Advice

West Midlands Police plays a key role in protecting the UK, but communities defeat terrorism and we need help and support from you and your community. Find out more about what we’re doing to keep West Midlands safe, how to spot possible terrorist activity and how to report anything suspicious that you’ve seen or heard. 

If you’ve seen or heard something that could suggest a terrorist threat to the UK, even if it seems minor or not worth mentioning, trust your instincts and ACT by reporting it.

Any piece of information could be important, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, it is better to be safe and report it.
