The Pursue, Protect and Prepare strands of the Government's strategy for counter-terrorism are dealt with in the Home Office by the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT). The Home Office also works with other Government Departments and agencies on these strands. Currently: 41 full-time equivalent Home Office staff are engaged directly on Pursue; 41.5 full-time equivalent Home Office staff are engaged directly on Protect; and, 34.6 full-time equivalent Home Office staff are engaged directly on Prepare. These numbers are subject to change in accordance with overall priorities. In addition, there are other members of staff in the Home Office who contribute to these strands of work as part of their wider responsibilities for counter-terrorism.
