ACT. Action Counters Terrorism
Is someone close becoming a stranger? It can be hard to know what to do if you are worried someone close is expressing extreme views or hatred, which could lead to them harming themselves or others. Working with other organisations, the police protect vulnerable people from being exploited by extremists through a Home Office programme called Prevent. Act early and tell us your concerns in confidence. You won't be wasting our time and you won't ruin lives, but you might save them.
