What we do
We engage with communities across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to raise awareness and promote the Prevent strategy. We encourage multi-agency working, helping others to identify the signs that a member of the public, friend or relative may be vulnerable to radicalisation or support violent extremism.
We also work to raise awareness of the channel project which aims to provide early intervention by identifying those vulnerable to violent extremism, from all faiths and backgrounds, providing support to those individuals and their families.
Here in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland we know that the way to combat the terrorist threat is to work hard to prevent people becoming involved in extremist activity in the first place.
Leicestershire Police has devised innovative initiatives that engage young people right across the Force area and encourage discussion and debate about counter terrorism between key groups.
Key organisations have been working closely with Leicestershire Police to make sure that we speak to and understand the views of the young and old alike.
