Prevent is about safeguarding vulnerable people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Political interest and protest, including in anti-fracking groups operating within the law, are entirely legitimate activities and are not of interest to Prevent. The Home Office and Police continually work together to improve the utility of Counter Terrorism Local Profiles (CTLPs).
