CRITICAL THREAT LEVEL STAKEHOLDER BRIEFING

CRITICAL THREAT LEVEL STAKEHOLDER BRIEFING

Wed, 24 May 2017 12:00 by Vicky Roe

National Security Update: Leicestershire Stakeholder briefing bulletin

Number 1: Accurate as of 1130hrs, Wednesday 24 May 2017

INTRODUCTION

Following the decision last night to increase the UK threat level to "critical" (meaning an attack is imminent), I thought you would find it helpful to be updated on a daily basis about the implications for Leicestershire and the operational activity we are undertaking to keep people safe. I intend to update you on a daily basis at around this time until further notice. More »

This briefing aims to provide you with an overview of the latest operational picture for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, some key messages that you can share with your own colleagues, staff and communities, and other useful advice and information.

CURRENT THREAT LEVEL: Critical

ATTACK UPDATE

Manchester: Three people have been arrested in South Manchester today by police in connection with the attack on Monday. They remain in police custody where they will be questioned.

OPERATION TEMPERER

Following the increase in the threat level, Operation Temperer has been invoked. This operational plan was developed following the Paris attacks in 2015 when the prime Minister asked the Home Secretary to work with the police and the Defence Secretary to ensure that the police were able to call upon significant support from the UK Military in the event of a similar incident occurring in the UK. Operation Temperer is a result of that work and is a contingency plan enabling the police to have the option for large scale military assistance should the need arise.

There are 10,000 military personnel available to be deployed across the whole of the UK.


LOCAL UPDATE

Following the decisions taken last night to increase the threat level and invoke Operation Temperer, senior Leicestershire Police officers, in liaison with local agencies and units, have assessed the local situation, reviewed resource levels and deployment plans for armed and unarmed officers. As a result, a decision has been taken that, at this stage, no military personnel will be deployed onto the streets of Leicestershire. This decision remains under constant review.

However, it has been decided that there will be an immediate increase in patrols of both armed and unarmed officers at key locations throughout the force area.

Detailed discussions will also be taking place with the managers of key sporting and entertainment venues and with the organisers of public events due to be held in the coming weeks, to ensure proportionate security arrangements are in place to protect the public.

MEDIA STATEMENTS ISSUED IN LAST 24 HOURS

Increased patrols in the light of revised terrorist threat

Issued on 24/5/17 at 10:09 a.m.

Despite the increase in the threat level of further terrorist attacks in the UK, there are no immediate plans to deploy military personnel onto the streets of Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland.

That decision was taken by senior officers in Leicestershire Police earlier this morning (Wednesday 24 May) following a thorough assessment of the local situation throughout the night.

However, the public will see an increase in patrols of armed and unarmed officers at key locations in the force area in the coming hours and days.

Detailed discussions will also be taking place with the managers of key sporting and entertainment venues and with the organisers of public events due to be held in the coming weeks, to ensure proportionate security arrangements are in place to protect the public.

The threat level of further terrorist attacks in the UK was increased last night to "critical" – meaning a further attack somewhere in the UK is assessed to be imminent.

As a result, a national operation called "Temperer" was invoked, allowing for military personnel to be deployed alongside Police Officers to reassure the public and to deter, disrupt and prevent terrorist activity.

But following a meeting of senior police personnel in Leicestershire this morning, there are no immediate plans to seek military assistance on the streets locally.

Deputy Chief Constable Roger Bannister said: "We have conducted a thorough assessment of the threat in Leicestershire and our well-established plans to respond to such an increased threat.

"Whilst we will be increasing patrols in key places and constantly reviewing the local and national picture, we have no immediate plans to seek the deployment of the military onto our streets."

He added: "Communities defeat terrorism, which is why we must maintain the strong and positive relationship between ourselves and our many diverse communities. We depend on information from the public, who can be our eyes and ears, in our efforts to keep us all safe.

"What happened on Monday evening in Manchester was truly horrific and our thoughts are very much with those who lost their lives and were injured.

"This is a time for us all to stay calm, to work closely together, and to unite against those who seek, through violence and extremism, to intimidate or to cause fear."
