Let's talk about it - Working together to prevent terrorism


What is Prevent?

Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism.

Prevent is part of the Government Counter Terrorism strategy and is designed to tackle the problem of terrorism at its roots by providing support and a safeguarding package from a range of different agencies such as the Local Council, Education, Health Sector, Police and Probation services to  prevent people from supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

Prevent objectives

  • Tackle the causes of radicalisation and respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism
  • Safeguard and suppoert those most at risk of radicalisation
  • Enable those already engaged in terrorism to disengage and rehabilitate

Extremism: The vocal or active opposition to our fundamental values including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and the respect and tolerance for different faiths and beliefs. We also regard calls for the death of members of our armed forces as extremist. (Counter Extremism Strategy, 2015)

How can you help Prevent?

Government experience and research has revealed how some British citizens are drawn into terrorism, and at Nottinghamshire Police we can help divert people away from this path.
