Dealing with the threat from terrorism – advice and support for businesses

The Met Police Protective Security Operations (Counter Terrorism) has created a number of new initiatives and programmes to support businesses in the fight against terrorism.  

London SHIELD App: This new app provides a single source of up-to-date and relevant Counter Terrorism information, advice and guidance. The app can be downloaded on the Apple App Store or via Google Play, and once registered the user will be provided with log-in details from the Counter Terrorism team. 

Security Advice Sheets: These sheets provide simple and straightforward advice for businesses on what to do in the rare event of a terrorism incident. There are two sheets, one for Licensed Premises and one for Retailers

ACT (Action Counters Terrorism) Awareness E-learning: The ACT Awareness e-learning can be undertaken by anyone to learn how to spot the signs of suspicious behaviour and understand what to do in the event of a major incident. The e-learning can be accessed HERE

Aide Memoire leaflet for different types of incidents: This leaflet provides simple advice for businesses on what to do in response to different types of security incidents including suspicious packages and unusual behaviour. The leaflet can be downloaded HERE.

If you would like to arrange an ACT or SCaN (See, Check and Notify) Training Session for your workers, please contact PC Bal Ghataura (Counter Terrorism Protect Officer) at
