Terror Suspects Charged
As you may have seen in the news, 5 persons were today charged with numerous offences involving an alleged terror plot to kill police officers on the streets of London.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley has today spoken to Steve White, PFEW Chairman, and confirmed that this development does not require a reassessment of the recent raising of the threat level to officers at present. The threat level was assessed just a week ago and the decision to charge has no material impact on the outcome of that assessment.
Whilst this is clearly a matter of the gravest concern for our members, we are advised that the briefings and advice issued last week remain valid.
Our own ACC Stratford has today stated that it remains sensible to take common sense precautions where possible so, if you have any doubts or concerns, err on the side of caution.
Steve White has been told that the PFEW will will continue to be briefed and consulted if appropriate so, if we receive more information on this, we'll let you know.
