Tunisia Attack: Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of The Met Police UK Increased Terror Threat Level.

Published

on

Statement by Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for counter terrorism:

“The UK police service continues to support those affected by the terrorist attack in Tunisia by providing a range of specialist officers and expertise.
“Extra officers are at British airports to support returning travellers and identify potential witnesses. We are supporting families both in the UK and overseas with specially trained liaison officers, and we are deploying a team of counter terrorism officers to Tunisia to support the UK coroner’s inquests. This includes forensic officers, detectives and other specialists.
“I would like to take this opportunity to make an appeal for anyone who was in Sousse, Tunisia around the time of the attack on Friday, 26 June to come forward with information or material that could help with our inquiries. Information can be passed in confidence to the anti-Terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.
“In the UK, the threat from international terrorism remains severe, meaning an attack is highly likely. Due to this level of threat the police service is already operating at a heightened state of alert and our security plans for public events reflect this readiness.
“However, in light of recent events we have reviewed security measures at a number of events and celebrations taking place this weekend. This is not in response to any specific threat but it is right that we keep our security plans under continual review to help protect and reassure the public.
“We continue to do everything we can to help keep the people safe by identifying, pursuing and prosecuting suspects and disrupting their activities.
“There has been a significant increase in the level of counter terrorist policing activity in the UK. Last year there were over 330 arrests – about one a day – and 89 people were convicted for terror-related offences.
“Specialist officers continue to work with partners to strengthen the protection and security of key sites, business and public places around the UK to help ensure they are safe for visitors and workers.”

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
