Terrorism advice for young people

The National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) has launched a safety campaign designed to teach 11-16 year olds how to act if they are caught up in a gun or knife attack. The campaign teaches children and young people to: RUN if they are able to; HIDE if they are not; and TELL police of the threat only when it is safe to do so. They are also advised to warn others about an on-going threat, and told not to stop and use their mobiles phones until they are safely away from danger. The first phase of the campaign includes the creation of a Run, Hide, Tell emoji, and a short video. NaCTSO have also teamed up with key partners including the NSPCC, Childline and Educate Against Hate, to help and support parents who are anxious about discussing such a topic with their children.
