Herefordshire is judged to be at low risk from terrorism, but it is important not to be complacent.
The basis of Prevent is simple: it is about keeping our communities safe from extremists. It does not carry a pre-conceived idea of who the extremists are, or their message.
However, it has to be responsive to the prevailing national and international situation. Together we need to promote strong and positive relationships between people from different backgrounds in the workplace, in schools and within neighbourhoods.
Herefordshire's approach therefore is to:
- Prevent people being drawn into terrorism and to support local communities and institutions to challenge and reject the message of extremism
