You may have noticed the Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) Awareness e-learning in the news just before Christmas last year. The free programme, which was developed by Highfield on behalf of NaCTSO and Marks and Spencer, was opened up to the wider public, with Counter Terrorism Policing calling on the British public to become ‘CT Citizens’ in order to spot suspicious behaviour and understand what do in the event of a major incident.
The call, from Deputy Assistant Commissioner Lucy D’Orsi, Senior National Coordinator for Protective Security, prompted scores of articles across the UK media and beyond, with lead items on BBC Breakfast and national newspapers, and coverage as far away as India, Russia and Canada.
Some journalists even took the e-learning themselves to see what the fuss was about (you can read more here: The Yorkshire Post, ‘I took counter-terrorism training and this is what I learnt’ https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/crime/i-took-counter-terrorism-training-and-this-is-what-i-learnt-1-10164064).
