Cleveland Police, together with police forces throughout the United Kingdom, is better trained and equipped than ever before to combat the threat of international and domestic terrorism. As part of the ongoing national counter terrorism strategy, the force has dedicated Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSAs) who are co-ordinated, trained and tasked by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO).The primary role of these advisers is to reduce the vulnerability to terrorist attack by providing protective security and counter terrorism advice to the following sectors:
  • Industry
  • Retail Organisations 
  • Leisure 
  • Financial Institutions
  • Utilities
  • Medical Research & Educational Institutes
  • Pharmaceutical Companies
  • NHS Trusts
  • Transport
  • Major Tourist Locations
  • Trade organisations

The CTSAs work closely with Police Forces, Government departments and other agencies throughout the country to provide expert advice in the following areas:

  • Risk Assessments / Vulnerability Surveys
  • Bomb Threat Response
  • Physical Security Measures
  • Mail Handling Procedures
  • Business Continuity & Contingency Planning
  • Transportation of Dangerous Goods 
  • Secure Storage of Pathogens, Toxins and Radiological Materials 
  • Chemical, Biological, Radioactive and Nuclear Protective Security

The public can also play a key role in supporting the Police. By remaining vigilant, being security minded and having good security measures in place, you can protect your business against crime and make the work of terrorists more difficult. A small investment in security measures greatly enhances the feeling of security on behalf of everyone and helps protect those around you.
