Terrorism Roadshows In Dorchester And Weymouth Today
8:47am 28th November 2014
Dorset Police are taking their fight against terrorism onto the streets of Dorchester and Weymouth today.
They're holding roadshows in the two towns are part of Terrorism Awareness Week.
The Terror threat level in the UK increased in August, and since then reports of suspicious behaviour have doubled.
Chief Superintendent Jane Newall said: "This is a National Awareness Week designed to promote awareness in our communities and not to alarm the public. The terror level increase refers to the whole country and not Dorset specifically.
"This week is intended to make the public aware of terrorism and give people the confidence to report anything they feel is suspicious.
"I would like to reassure the communities of Dorset that we live in a safe county. If you know or suspect anything suspicious please call The Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.
"Your information could save lives."
