CONTEST is the UKs strategy for countering terrorism. Two of the elements in this initiative are:1) PREVENT to discourage people being drawn into terrorism by giving advice and support, and 2) PURSUE with the aim of detecting and disrupting terrorist threats.

As landlords, we have a responsibility to inform the police if for any reason we suspect that any of our tenants or their associates may be involved in, support or sympathise with any form of terrorist activity. After all, terrorists have to live somewhere, and landlords may well come across items within a property which may raise their suspicions. These could include posters, literature, chemicals or weapons. A landlordís suspicion may also be raised by conversations with or the activities of their tenants and/or associates. The threat level in the UK remains SEVERE, and recent events in France are a reminder that we all have a duty to assist the police and security services in countering this threat. You can do this by making a report of any suspicious activity on the following telephone contacts:

101 Local police
0800 789321 Anti-terrorist hotline
999 But only in a case where someone is in immediate danger of physical harm
