London’s Metropolitan Police Service are going to every measure to ensure the safety and protection of the public. Extra officers are being used as part of a wider policing plan to patrol crowded places, iconic sites, and transport hubs. An additional one-thousand armed officers were added to carry out patrols across the UK in a one day mission identified as Operation Temperer.
After the horrendous terrorist attack, Operation Temperer was activated on Tuesday night. The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC), in light of the possibility that another attack remains likely, raised the threat level to critical. The current terrorist threat level can mean that upwards of 3,800 military personnel may be organized to support police efforts within 12 to 96 hours of a terrorism incident occurring in the UK, according to the well-prepared contingency plan.
Mark Rowley, the head of national Counter Terrorism Policing, said: “The public expects us to do everything we can to prevent further attacks and to protect them from harm. They will see increased police patrols in the coming days, while there will be more armed officers at key locations, transport hubs and crowded places to deter terrorists and reassure the public. We are grateful to the military who have enabled us to put even more police on the streets to protect the public at this time."
“It is critical that the public work with us and remain vigilant. If you see anything that causes concern, then let us know immediately. Look out for anything that seems out of place, unusual or doesn’t seem to fit in with day-to-day life. It may be nothing, but if you see or hear anything that could be terrorist-related then trust your instinct and call us in confidence on 0800 789 321, or in an emergency 999.”
