There will be armed police patrols in the city this festive season, although it is important to emphasise that there is no specific threat to Winchester.
The purpose of the patrols is to provide a proportionate policing response to mitigate terrorist activity, whilst also reassuring the community and business owners during this period of heavy footfall.
There are a number of free counter terrorism information resources provided by the Police which are available for your business and below are some useful links.
UK Protect – Protective Security Information for the Business Community
MPS Advice – MPS Advice To Private Sector and Local Events
ACT – Action Counters Terror Awareness E-Learning
