ACT | ACTION COUNTERS TERRORISM
What happens when I contact the police?
When you make a report about suspicious activity or behaviour, our specially trained officers and police staff will take the details and pass these on for further checks.
The information you provide will be kept secure and your identity will be protected.
Your call is not recorded, and you do not need to give your name.
Don’t be concerned about wasting police time.
What should I do if I find terrorist or violent extremist content online?
Terrorists also use the internet to provoke individuals to carry out attacks in the UK.
One post or video has the power to influence vulnerable people and inspire extremists and terrorists. Therefore it is important to tackle online terrorism as well.
You can help us stop terrorists’ and extremists’ online presence by reporting content such as:
- Speeches or essays calling for racial or religious violence
- Videos of violence with messages in praise of terrorists
- Postings inciting people to commit acts of terrorism or violent extremism
- Messages intended to stir up hatred against any religious or ethnic group
- Bomb-making instructions
- Advice on how to obtain or make weapons
If you see online graphic or violent extremist material or content that supports, directs or glorifies terrorism please report it using our anonymous online reporting form.
A specialist police team will examine the content and will work with internet companies to remove it if appropriate.
