THE Assistant Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police has reassured the public that the police service is working with partners to ensure they do ‘everything possible to protect our communities’.
ACC Richard Moore said in a statement released last night (Friday): “Following the events in London today, the Prime Minister has increased the UK threat level to critical.
“Warwickshire Police is working with all local and national emergency service partners to ensure we do everything possible to protect our communities.
“At this time there is no specific threat to Warwickshire but we will increase our Armed Response Vehicle (ARV) capacity in response to the national situation.
“We will also continue to provide a visible policing presence to offer reassurance to our communities and we would urge people to remain calm and vigilant.
“We urge the public to remain alert but not alarmed – the police service and our partners are doing everything we can to help protect our communities and public spaces.
“We advise the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour or activity on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency the public should always call 999.”
