Over 10,000 people have now downloaded the National Counter Terrorism Security Office app which offers employers and employees live-time information from counter terrorism policing straight to their phones, giving them 24/7 access to the latest protective security advice, wherever you are.

Key features of the app include:

  • Practical advice and guidance to help you protect your business, plus information on how to respond in the event of an attack
  • Information on CT Policing’s suite of ACT training products, plus access to the online e-Learning package
  • Suite of NaCTSO guidance videos
  • Latest reference documents and publications
  • ACT online reporting form and confidential hotline
  • Emergency response and post-incident guidance
  • Live-time news updates from UK Protect

Launched in March this year and powered by Urim, the ACT app is free for businesses and has been developed in partnership with industry specialists from Marks and Spencer and Highfield eLearning. It is designed for use across business and industry, including the security, sporting and retail sectors.

If employers or employees wish to strengthen their knowledge and awareness of counter terrorism they are also able to take part in a short ‘ACTE-learning Awareness course’ where participants will have the opportunity to complete 7 online modules ranging from ‘How to identify and deal with a suspicious item’ to ‘What to do in the event of a bomb threat’.

Devised by CT officers and security experts, the ACT Awareness eLearning package was previously only available to staff working in crowded places like shopping centres and entertainment venues.

Now Counter Terrorism Policing has decided to open up the training to anyone who wants to become a CT Citizen so they can learn how to spot the signs of suspicious behavior and understand what to do in the event of a major incident.

ACT Awareness eLearning will provide nationally recognised corporate CT guidance to help people better understand, and mitigate against, current terrorist methodology.
