Video: Essex Police on counter terrorism
9:00am Monday 4th February 2013 in News
Essex Police has released a video about its counter-terrorist strategy.
Prevent is part of Essex Police's counter-terrorist strategy and aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism by working with individuals and communities to address issues before they become a criminal matter and to stop people moving from extremism into terrorist-related activity.
A play designed to raise awareness is touring schools across the county to raise awareness.
Entitled 'Do Not Forget', it tells the story of a 16-year-old boy who finds himself drawn into extremist behaviour as a way of channelling the feelings of hurt and anger he feels as a result of his father's recent death. A short preview can be seen here.
