While GMP, the National Police Counter Terrorism Network and security services are working hard to bring offenders to justice and keep people safe there are steps that everyone can take to help us tackle terrorism and keep themselves as safe as possible while the threat is heightened.
Some of the steps that people can take include:

Tell the police by calling 999.
