What can I do to help police?

It's important that the public remain vigilant and aware about the real and serious threat the UK faces from terrorism. Also they need to be aware about how they can help us to fight terrorism.  In many criminal investigations we rely on the public to come forward with information and terrorism is no exception. You can help us by supporting this campaign and getting our message out to people in your local community. Terrorists live among us while they are planning their attacks so we need the public's help to spot suspicious behaviour which could be terrorist related and call the confidential  Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.

What's the maximum/minimum sentence for terrorism?

Naturally, this depends on what offence a person is charged with and subsequently convicted of. You can get up to life in prison for planning or carrying out a terrorist attack. For more info about terrorism have a look at our website www.met.police.uk/terrorism or http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/counter-terrorism

What are police doing to combat the threat from terrorists?

The threat from terrorism to the UK is real and serious. Recent convictions have shown that there are people intent on attacking us. The MPS has a key role in countering that threat. Our overriding priority continues to be to keep the public safe. We do this by working with all our communities. You will understand that we cannot always tell you exactly what we're doing but rest assured we are working tirelessly.

Action Fraud - report fraud and internet crimes

Action Fraud logo Call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040

 

Fraud is a crime that can happen to anyone. There are many types of fraud from complex scams that are carried out over long periods of time, for example, dating scams, mortgage fraud and investment scams.

IndividualsOther frauds may be committed quickly and often: bank fraud, online shopping fraud, utility scams. The victim may not realise that money has been taken from their account until a significant amount of time has elapsed between the crime and the discovery of the financial loss. 

Often when someone is a victim of a fraud they are not certain if a crime has been committed or how to report what has happened to them. Many frauds go unreported by victims because of personal embarrassment. It is likely that if a fraud has been committed against you someone else may have suffered a similar crime. The more individuals report, the more likely it is that fraudsters will be arrested, charged and convicted.

People who report fraud crime to Action Fraud represent a wide cross-section of the UK. They vary in age from young adults to the elderly. As frauds can be committed online, face to face, over the telephone or via the post, most people will have experienced fraud or know someone who has been a victim.

Action Fraud offers consumers the ability to report crime but also signposts individuals to organisations for further help and support. A fraud may not be considered a police matter under current legislation, for instance benefit fraud is something that should be reported to the Department for Work and Pensions or the appropriate local authority.

We have made the process of reporting easier for individuals who can simply log on to the website or telephone the contact centre. The capability to report fraud online means that Action Fraud’s services are accessible seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. We advise that if someone is in immediate physical danger they should phone 999.
