Counter Terrorism Policing routinely reviews the threat to all our communities in light of events in the UK and elsewhere, assessing all relevant intelligence reporting. In light of this, appropriate action is taken to ensure the safety of all faith communities.

The Government’s Places of Worship Protective Security Funding Scheme continues to provide funding to reassure communities and safeguard mosques and other places of worship. The scheme will provide £3.2 million in 2020-21 (double the amount awarded previously), and in addition a new £5 million fund will be opened to provide security training.
