Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) is a national campaign by Counter Terrorism Policing urging the public to act on their instincts to help tackle the terrorist threat to the UK.
‘Make nothing happen’ focuses on the critical role the public can play in defeating terrorism. This urges the public to report suspicious activity to help police bring dangerous offenders to justice and prevent terror attacks in the UK and overseas.
At a time when the scale, volume and complexity of the terrorism threat continues to grow, police are advising the public to act to report any potential suspicious activity or online content they come across and are concerned about.
The public already contribute intelligence to around a third of the most serious terrorism investigations. This new campaign reassures communities that they shouldn’t be concerned about wasting police time or getting someone into trouble.
The message is clear - ‘don’t worry, don’t delay, just act’ by:
